    Dr Mohammed Seaid is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences, Durham University. His doctoral research focused on the design and analysis of numerical methods for simulating the radiative heat transfer equations in gas turbine combustion chambers. His post-doctoral research was conducted in the area of numerical modelling of coupled radiation and hydrodynamics using simplified PN approximations, M1 entropy models and nonlinear multilevel methods.

    Along with Prof. Axel Klar (in the Fraunhofer Institut Techno- und Wirtschaftsmathematik at Kaiserslautern, Germany), he has been developping efficient models for radiation and conduction in high temperature gas flows. The general research results have wide applicability within engineering. Since 2001, much of his research work has been undertaken within the SFB 568 Research Group, a strongly collaborative group of mechanical engineers and distributed computing researchers at the universities of Darmstadt, Heidelberg, and Kaiserslautern.

    At present he teaches L3 Hydraulics, L3 Dynamics, and L4 Hydrology.
