Dr. Ebeida’s core competencies lie in Computational geometry, Uncertainty Quantification and Applied Mathematics. He graduated from University of California, Davis in 2008 with a Ph.D. in mechanical and aeronautical engineering and a master’s in applied mathematics. He worked for two years as a postdoc at Carnegie Mellon University.

In 2010, he joined Sandia National Laboratories, where he works in exploring the potential of Voronoi decompositions for a wide range of non-traditional applications. Mohamed published over 50 papers and has 3 patents. Mohamed is also the founder and the program lead of the IbnSina Mindcrafters, a robotics school that was established at the Islamic Center of New Mexico (ICNM) in 2016, serving more than 120 students so far.

Many teams formed out of this program participate in the First Lego League (FLL) competition. In their first year, the top teams made it all the way from New Mexico qualifiers to the international stage at the Mountain State competition, winning the core-value award. In 2018, these two teams joined forces to form an FTC team coached by Mohamed, and in their first FTC season, the Marvels won about 12 trophies over the past three years in New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado Championship. In 2021, The Marvels were the Champions of the NM regional competition.
