Dr Ashraf Ahmed Mohamed
Reader in Civil Engineering

Howell Building 248


Ashraf is a fellow member of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management, chartered Engineer (CEng), chartered Environmentalist (CEnv), and Chartered Water and Environmental Manager of CIWEM (C.WEM). He has a BSc, Meng from Egypt, and PhD from the University of Manchester, all in Civil Engineering. Before joining academia, he worked in the industry for a short period in reinforced concrete design. Ashraf is currently a Reader at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Brunel University London. Before joining Brunel, he was a lecturer at the School of Natural and Built Environment, Queen’s University Belfast. Ashraf has been involved in research grants totalling more than £9 million as Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator from EU, EPSRC, Newton, Innovate UK, and other sources. Ashraf is the principal investigator at Brunel for the project WE-ACT (€526,864,  January 2023 - December 2026) where he leads a team to build a machine learning model for efficient water management in a transboundary river area at central Asia.  This Horizon EU project is funded by UKRI through the UKRI Horizon Europe Funding Guarantee. Current research interests include the use of Artificial intelligence and deep learning in solving Civil Engineering problems, especially problems related to Environmental issues, water flow, and the impact of climate change.

Ashraf is the developer and course director of the MSc in Water& Environmental Engineering. Externally, he serves as a member of CIWEM accreditation panel and is also an assessor of CEng, and CEnv applications.
