Dr. Mohamed K. Riahi earned his PhD in Applied Mathematics from Pierre et Marie Curie University, Paris, France. He has worked as a postdoc research associate in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA, and in INRIA-Saclay Palaiseau France as a postdoc researcher, with DeFI Team.

Dr. Riahi is an expert in scientific computing and numerical analysis related to partial differential equations. His research includes and is not limited to: space- time-domain decomposition methods, finite element method, integral equations method, numerical optimization, iterative method, preconditioning technique, shape optimization, optimal control problem, high performance computing and parallel programming.

He applies his research on waves related problems (acoustics and electromagnetics), fluid-structure interaction, heat and mass transfer, and inverse problems.

Dr. Riahi is serving as referee for several peer reviewed applied mathematical journals.
