Mohammad Tabarra


  • Global Tunnel Ventilation Leader

I lead Arup's tunnel ventilation team, advising clients contractors and operators on industrial tunnel ventilation and metro projects, as well as solar energy projects.

With over 35 years of consulting and R&D management experience, I specialise in tunnel and metro ventilation, aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and solar energy. I’ve led the design and technical management of many of Arups successful tunnel and metro projects and have lectured extensively to future engineers.

I'm a Fellow of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and member of ASHRAE TC5.9, reviewing and contributing to several papers. I work closely with clients, applying R&D and linking academics to contractors to deliver sustainable tunnel and metro solutions to help shape a greener world.
