Muhammed Nabeel is a Research Engineer at the Mubadala Arabian Center for Climatic and Environmental Sciences. Nabeel graduated in Mechanical Engineering from Visvesvaraya Technological University in India. He further enhanced his skills by obtaining a Master's degree in Mechatronics from Vellore Institute of Technology. Throughout his academic journey, he worked on various mechatronic systems, IoT-based solutions, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and robotics.

After successfully completing his Master's degree, Nabeel began his career at the Indian startup Ethna Attributes. He played a crucial role in developing mechatronic solutions for mobility and industry. A notable achievement was his contribution to the "IoT Architecture for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies" project, showcasing his expertise in industrial IoT. Motivated by a pursuit of excellence, he transitioned to the Velius Group. In this role, he led the development of Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) platforms, including SCORPIO-M and SCORPIO-S variants. His responsibilities encompassed electronics configuration, sensor integration, and actuator calibration. His collaborative spirit extended to working with software and hardware teams, resulting in the creation of user manuals compliant with ISO standards.

During his tenure at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), Nabeel has explored new areas. His research has encompassed vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft, circuit design for sensor networks, and drone control systems. His efforts have led to the publication of significant papers, such as "Mechatronic Design and Control of a Hybrid Ground-Air-Water Autonomous Vehicle" and "Prototyping an Environmental Sensor Network for Meteorological and Climate Studies at the City Scale." These contributions earned him recognition, awards, and substantial progress in the field meteorological and climatic studies.

Nabeel also engaged in oceanic research and environmental sensor deployment, including collaboration with the Environmental Agency-Abu Dhabi (EAD). He collected water samples and vital data using advanced Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth (CTD) devices.
