Biography

Mohammad is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in Business and Design Process Modelling at the Engineering Design Centre (EDC) of Cambridge University where he is engaged in two industrial projects in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and British Telecom, as well as being part of the development team of Cambridge Advance Modeller (CAM) software. For the next couple of years, his main focus of research is about developing an Intelligent Decision Propagation System and working on the extension of Signposting Systems.

Prior to joining EDC, Mohammad has been passed his PhD and an Industrial Postdoctoral in Politecnico di Torino (Italy) where he developed an award-winning process modelling methodology so-called Actor-Based Signposting (ABS), and consequently was appointed as a Product Development Consultant by STC, a consulting company in Product Design and Development Processes.

Mohammad is an Industrial Engineer with a considerable range of experiences come from years of working in Industry (as eg Production Manager, R&D Engineer, and Consultant in Process Improvement), and teaching roles (in the undergraduate courses such as Project Planning and Control, JIT and Lean Production Systems, and Theory of Probability and its Applications) in accredited universities.
