Work Experience

August 2006 - on going:
Project Director for Biomedical Engineering equipments at King Saud University Hospital, Riyadh. Project runs five sections Bio-Mechanical, Bio-Electronics, Bio-Laboratory, Bio-X-ray and Bio-PC.

Dec. 2001 - Dec. 2002:
Post Doctorate (Research Fellow), Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton. The research is about modelling and designing an active noise cancellation system in Airplanes. MATLAB toolboxes were used for the simulation and the system implementation.

Nov. 1998 - Nov. 2001:
Post Doctorate (Research Fellow), School of Biology, University of Leeds. The research involves the 3D sound implementations in Virtual Reality as was funded for 3 years by the EPSRC. Experience includes: the use of Silicon Graphics System, signal processing, World Tool Kit from Sense8 and C++ programming. The project also includes the human hearing response model of bat echolocation to various bands of frequencies to implement on VR.

Oct. 1994 - Oct. 1998:
Research involves the cancellation of acoustic noise produced by MRI scanners conducted at Medical Physics Dept., University of Dundee. Experience includes: signal processing, programming, data analysis, designing an active noise cancellation system and using data acquisition & DSP boards. The research involves the human hearing response.

Nov. 1993 - Mar. 1994:
Four months in the Medical Electronics Department and Clinical Measurements Department at the Royal Devon & Exeter Healthcare Trust during which a number of Electronics Projects conducted.

May 1993 - Jun. 1993:
Five weeks at the Medical Physics Department of Christie Hospital, Manchester, involved with the following: Nuclear Medicine Services, Support to Diagnostic Radiology Department, Support to users of Ultrasound Equipment, Brachytherapy Services, Radiotherapy Physics Services

June 1992 - Oct. 1992:
Experimental portion of M.Sc. Project (The Study of Flatness of Radiation Distribution from Linear Accelerator using Semiconductor Radiation Detector) conducted in the Medical Physics Department at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, involving the formation of the Measurements of Beam Flatness by utilising a DPD Diode System on a 6 MV Varian Linear Accelerator. A program was developed to control the DPD System and display the results achieved.
