Biography

  • Dr Saqr was born in Alexandria, Egypt in 1982. He received B.Sc. and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Alexandria University and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2004 and 2011, respectively. Dr. Saqr is specialized in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). He has published more than 80 papers in international journals and conferences covering a broad spectrum of the theory and applications of CFD including turbulence modelling, combustion dynamics, renewable energy and most recently intracranial hemodynamics. Dr. Saqr received international recognition for his research from several organizations and universities around the world. He received the honorary affiliation of the African Academy of Sciences in 2018. He has been a visiting researcher, then a visiting research fellow and invited lecturer with UTM, Malaysia, from 2012 to 2014. He regularly receives the Distinguished Publications Award from the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport every year since 2014.

    Most recently, Dr. Saqr has been a visiting professor with the Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University, Japan in the summer of 2017. Since 2010, his biography is listed in Marquise Who’s Who® biographical dictionary. In 2017, Dr. Saqr received the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award for his scientific achievements in the past ten years. Along with international recognition, Dr. Saqr has contributed efficiently to the national research priorities of Egypt. He was nominated for Egypt’s most prestigious scientific award, State Encouragement Award, for his works on the applications of CFD in modeling renewable energy systems. Dr. Saqr co-founded the Research Center for Computational Neurovascular Biomechanics (RCCNB) in collaboration with Alexandria University and the Egyptian Science and Technology Development Fund. RCCNB is the first nationwide research center specialized in vascular biomechanics with a primary objective to contribute to the brain stroke research in Egypt.

    Now, Dr. Saqr leads the CFD team at RCCNB to develop anatomically accurate CFD simulations of blood flow in intracranial blood vessels. In addition to his academic and research endeavours, Dr. Saqr is proactive in providing consultancy in the fields of research management and simulation systems on the national and regional levels.
