Dr. Awadalla is an Biomedical and electronics engineer with over 10 years’ of experience in image processing and computational modeling (FEA and CFD). Dr. Awadalla is currently working on a project funded by DePuy Synthes (part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices group). Through working with DePuy Dr. Awadalla have been investigating the primary stability of the DePuy ATTUNE® Revision Rotating Platform Knee System and he has been involved with the development of new knee system. In his current position, Dr. Awadalla was responsible for developing specifications and work plan, writing a research grant with payment time frame, identified non-conformances and developed rectification plans and recommendations,and conducted parametric, full, fractional factorial studies.

Dr. Awadalla have tutored one topics in the last three years: Mechanics and Structures (Introduces the students to static and dynamic systems).

In addition, Dr. Awadalla have extensive experience in root cause analysis (RCA), management of change (MoC), proactive preventative assessment, and risk assessment and management. Dr. Awadalla worked with Metro Trains Melbourne, where he reviewed, evaluated, and optimized the technical maintenance plan (TMP) for the Siemens train fleet.Dr. Awadalla has an in-depth understanding of the train electrical and pneumatic systems.

Furthermore, Dr. Awadalla have a central role in the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) where he is the joint technical program manager and the present around the world (PATW) competition manager. Last year Dr. Awadalla have organised the South Australian and Northern territory round of the global PATW competition. PATW is a presentation competition for under and postgraduates students. In this event he reached out to under and postgraduate’s students in four universities in South Australia and the Northern territory and Dr. Awadalla was able to bring students from all four universities to participate in this event.
