Dr Maksoud has over 30 years experience in research. He published over 75 papers in Journals and international conferences. Also, published several best papers in the field of advanced grinding technology. His main interests are in Grinding technology, heat transfer analyses, computational fluid dynamics, Aerodynamics, and Artificial Intelligence use in Manufacturing. Dr Maksoud has supervised over a dozen PhD’s as well as MPhil’s. He has acted as external and internal examiner for several PhD’s in Britain, Germany and Egypt, He is a recognised referee for several peer reviewed academic Journals and has been interested in multi-discipline research activity highlighted by major research in the field of grinding technology, image processing, neural networks and aerodynamics of wing sections. Many of these activities has resulted in novel techniques in sensing and operation of the grinding and dressing of advanced materials. Also, in techniques to reduce the drag and augment Lift on wing sections.
