Dr Ibrahim obtained his doctorate in Computational Mechanics from IIT Delhi. Following this he spent one academic year as an Erasmus Mundus Postdoctoral Fellow in Aerospace Engineering Department at the Politecnico di Torino Italy working with Prof. Erasmo Carrera group, before being appointed as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering, King Saud University (KSU), Saudi Arabia. With his involvement both in performing large scale experiments and numerical modelling of concrete structures, he was a prominent member of the research group at the university. After a successful stay of more than five years at KSU, he joined at the present profile.
Dr Ibrahim has undertaken research in the areas of nonlinear dynamics, modelling of thin-walled structures using classical/advance theories, fracture of fiber concrete, strain rate behaviour of quasi-brittle materials and strengthening of concrete structures. He is a trained user of 80mm diameter Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar (SHPB) apparatus and 50mm diameter penetration tester for conducting strain rate experiments on quasi-brittle materials like concrete. He is the author of many works published in several international peer-reviewed journals.
