Dr. Shabaan is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Program at Nile University, Cairo, Egypt. He is also a Professional Engineer with extensive academic and industrial experience in Fluid-Structure Interaction, Structural Dynamics, and Vibration. Mahmoud is an alumnus of Cairo University and has a Ph.D. from Ontario Tech University in Canada. Mahmoud lectured engineering students at the Bachelor level in fundamental and advanced courses, including Vibration, Combustion, and Structural Dynamics.
Dr. Shabaan has experience as a consultant for projects of academic and industrial scopes in the fields of Fluid-Structure Interaction, Noise, Vibration, Aeroacoustics, and Thermalhydraulic Analysis. He worked with the Noise and Vibration team at Apple Inc., in Cupertino, CA, to address vibration and noise in consumer electronics. He also carried out research in renewable energy production and storage in thermoacoustic devices in the Lab of Thermoacoustics at the American University in Cairo.
His current research focus is on energy production by coupled structural and acoustic, and modes in open channels. He is also interested in the numerical modelling of unstable thermal modes in thermal syphons.
