Mohammed Ali is an Associate Professor at the Department of Technology, Jackson State University (JSU), Jackson, MS, USA. Dr. Mohammed Ali has obtained his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering, his M.B.A. degree in management of technology, his M.S. degree in computer science, and his Ph.D. degree in biomedical instrumentation from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, AR, USA. He is directing the Biosimulation and Aerosol Research Lab at the department where graduate and undergraduate students are pursuing cutting-edge experiments in the field of biomedical engineering. He has published 30+ peer-reviewed journal articles and a book chapter, and he has, furthermore, presented in 40+ national and international conferences. His research interests include the following: bioengineered drug design and noninvasive delivery; modeling and simulation of lung airways flows and deposition; computation in biomedical engineering; attracting minorities in manufacturing engineering and energy technology; data mining on student’s college performance and retention; and continuing education and outreach on STEM. In addition, Dr. Ali received numerous honors and awards. Among them, the US National Faculty Excellence Award by the Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering is commendable to be mentioned. This rigorous peer-reviewed ATMAE Award of high honor is only given to those faculties of 4-year engineering and technology programs in the country who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research, and service in an academic career. As a Visiting Research Professor, under the summer faculty fellowship program, Dr. Ali has been teamed up with the scientists in the US Navy and US Air Force since 2010 to investigate novel methodology for pulmonary drug delivery and biosimulation of the aerosolized particle flow and suspension of the human lung. Findings of their research showed that accelerated attenuation of pathogenic viruses can be achieved by contacting them with iodide oxidants in such that virus’ half-life turns out to be about a minute.
