Omar Ahmad is a Senior Team Leader at the National Advanced Driving Simulator. Since 1992, his analytical and research activities have focused on behavior modeling and scenario control in real-time virtual environments.
Omar joined NADS in 1998 and is a part of the team that designed and developed the scenario control and the real-time virtual environment software for the NADS. Along with performing program management activities, he is currently leading the virtual environment modeling team at the NADS.
As a kid, Omar lived in England and in Pakistan before coming to Iowa City at the age of 10. Since then, he has called Iowa City his home and has received his education at the local schools and the University. He enjoys home remodeling and learning how to the play the guitar.
