See here for an article Wahbi wrote on his research.
Wahbi's research interests are primarily related to the brain. In particular, how does the microcirculation affect blood and oxygen transport in the brain? What happens when things go wrong? Can we link what we can measure in humans e.g. MRI scans (the macro-scale) to what we cannot see (the capillaries – the micro-scale) in order to help us better understand the mechanisms of disease? These are just some of the questions Wahbi tries to answer in his research. As engineers, we are ideally positioned to use our creative problem-solving skills to tackle these sorts of interdisciplinary problems.
Wahbi currently has three main research projects/interests revolving around stroke and stroke treatment, measuring intracranial pressure non-invasively, and dementia and cognitive decline.
