Dr. Ali’s expertise is in probabilistic design and optimization
of complex systems under uncertainty. Since joining the GE global research
center, Dr. Ali was a key member and then led the team that developed
the design for six-sigma tools utilized across GE. Dr. Ali also participated
in the design and optimization of a wide range of products including x-ray
tubes and gas turbines with the common theme of achieving robust designs
under uncertain loading and operating conditions. Dr. Ali also led the
development of GE strategy and vision for digitizing the design process
across multiple GE businesses.

Dr. Ali is also a certified master black-belt at GE which is the
highest six-sigma certification. Six-sigma is a rigorous data-driven
methodology adopted at GE and other companies to quantitatively
account for variation and achieve optimal products and services.
As part of Dr. Ali Ph.D. thesis, an innovative algorithm was developed
for topological optimization of composite structure, with a particular
focus on topological optimization of concrete structures.
Dr. Ali holds a Bachelor and Masters in Structural Engineering &
Mechanics, 1991 & 1994 from Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt and a Doctor
of Philosophy, Structural Mechanics, 1997 from Cornell University, Ithaca,
