MAE - Postdoctoral | Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Omar Ibrahim received his PhD from Mississippi State University in 2017. After his PhD, he worked as a full-time lecturer at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), University of Massachusetts-Lowell (UMass-Lowell) and Mississippi State University (MSU) for the period between August 2017 and December 2022. His lecturer role focused on teaching nine core courses in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering departments, advising students, acting as a liaison with the RIT campus in Dubai, and serving as a coordinator in ABET and curriculum and assessment committees.
Ibrahim joined the department of MAE at the University of Missouri-Columbia as a postdoctoral in January 2023. In previous research, he helped design and conduct multiple experiments focused on characterizing the heat transfer and energy harvesting performance of various novel media. This work resulted in developing a novel thermoelectric generator, as well as multiple peer-reviewed journal publications. In his MS he gained additional research experience by working as a visiting research scholar at Newcastle University in the UK and led efforts focused on designing/analyzing combined gas-steam power cycles. His previous and current research interests include ultra-high power/flux thermal management, surface enhancement, micro/nano thermal/fluid science, two-phase heat transfer, oscillating heat pipes, waste heat recovery, and heat recovery steam generators.
