Ahmed Mahmood started studying for a PhD programme in the school of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, UK in July 2022. He completed his master's degree at the University of Mosul/ School of Mechanical Engineering after obtaining his engineering bachelor's degree at Northern Technical University's/ Department of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineering. Then he employed in the Northern Technical University and awarded a scholarship in 2022 by the office of the Iraqi Prime Minister/ The Higher Committee For Education Development in Iraq (HCED) to complete his PhD in the UK.
Ahmed's main research interests include computational fluid dynamics (CFD), numerical fluid dynamics in microfluidic systems, particularly the fundamental investigation and understanding of problems related to the interactions between heat transfer and fluid flow in microchannel heat sinks and cold plates, design optimization and machine learning. His current research focuses on the design optimization of the microchannel cold plates for electric vehicle battery thermal management systems (BTMS).
