Current Research and Scholarly Interests


Performing stability analysis on acoustofluidics at the micro and nano scales using the energy perturbation method. Non-linear analysis is performed to understand the stability of specific solutions. Bifurcation parameters are identified and numerical techniques are used to complement the study and validate experimental data. Direct applications are acoustic waves in batteries to prohibit/delay the formation of dendrites on the anode/cathode implying a longer battery life.

Work Experience


  • Strategy Consultant in the Energy & Utilities Practice, Arthur D. Little (2015 - 2018)

    - Developed an investment strategy for a leading utility and designed its venture capital arm to diversify
    the firm’s revenues – including solar energy CSP, wind turbines, electric batteries, and electric vehicles
    - Detailed a list of technological initiatives that included investment in energy price reforms, net metering,
    energy conversion and a renewable energy program
    - Designed the strategy and organization structure of an EPC spin-off for one of the largest utilities in the
    world – this included a business case on fiber optics lending
    - Conducted a due diligence for a private equity, performing a market analysis and company assessment of
    a leading energy provider in the GCC
    - Designed and executed a private sector development lab that involved 24 GCC government entities and
    over 700 CEOs from the private sector

  • Research Scientist, U.C. Berkeley (2014)

    Developed numerical models for the flow of rheological liquids. Derived the
    extended hydrodynamic equations for non-Newtonian fluids, and conducted simulations for different setups including flow over cylinders. Research was carried under the supervision of Professor David Steigmann
