Personal profile


I Joined Coventry University on September 2015 as Lecturer in Dynamics. Previously I was Research Fellow at Cranfield University. I have over 10 years experince as a Mechanical Engineer in Power Generation Industry, through my previous career, I participated in, and headed, many committees for Power stations maintenance and overhauls management. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sudan University of Scince and Technology (BSc), MSc in Mechanical Engineering Design from The University of Manchester and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Cranfield University. My research area is rotating machines diagnosis and prognosis. Recent involvement in the renewables area includes contributions towards the design of condition monitoring system for tidal turbines.


Condition monitoring, diagnosis, prognosis, and intelligent health management are effective means to reducing the downtime and maintenance cost and improving the reliability of machines. These important issues have drawn more and more attention during the last decade and significant research effort is being taken by both academia and industry to advance the technologies for condition monitoring, diagnosis, prognosis, and health management of rotating machines.

My research Goal is to undertake applied research and development with the aim of advancing the scope and the sensitivity of machinery fault detection, diagnosis, prognosis, performance and emissions monitoring. My current researchs investigates: Machine diagnostics and prognostics; Asset integrity and management; Gearbox dynamics and design.

Area of Expertise:

  • Health Monitoring Techniques for Rotating Machinery
  • Finite Element (FE) modelling
  • Condition Monitoring and Aging Management of Structures
