Research and Professional Activities

The research of Dr. Laadhari is interdisciplinary and is mainly focused on the mathematical modeling and development of new computational methods for the simulation of free surface flows and biomedical phenomena covering different spatiotemporal scales. He has been developing methodologies for the numerical solution of Partial Differential Equations mainly in a Finite Element framework. Before joining Zayed University, Dr. Laadhari worked on several cutting-edge research projects. In particular, he was a project coordinator at ETH Zurich of a joint interdisciplinary Swiss National Science Foundation project between the Computer Vision Laboratory and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering of ETH Zurich and the Clinic for Cardiovascular Surgery of University Hospital Zurich.
