Ashraf is a chartered Engineer, chartered Environmentalist, and Chartered Water and Environmental Manager of CIWEM. He has BSc, Meng from Egypt, and PhD from the University of Manchester, all in Civil Engineering. Before joining the academia, he worked in industry for a short period in reinforced concrete design. He is currently a Senior Lecturer, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Prior to 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 £2,583,000 from EPSRC, Newton, Innovate UK, and other sources. Current research interests include the use of Artificial intelligence and deep learning in solving Civil Engineering problems especially those related to Environmental issues, water flow, and climate change.
