Welcome to Dr. Ala A. Hussein's webpage. Through this page you may access the home pages of my publications list, the courses that I teach, my contact information and others.
I received my B.S.
degree in Electrical Engineering in 2005 from Jordan University of Science and
Technology, Irbid, Jordan, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering
from University of Central Florida, Orlando, USA, in 2008 and 2011, respectively.
In 2016, I joined the Department of Electrical Power Engineering at
Yarmouk University in Jordan as an Assistant Professor. From 2012 to 2016, I
was an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering at the
United Arab Emirates University in Al Ain. From 2011 to 2012, I was
with Coda Automotive (previously EnergyCS), Inc., Los Angeles, USA.
My current research focuses on improving the efficiency
of Li-ion battery chargers and estimating the internal parameters of batteries including the state-of-charge and state-of-health. I have hands-on
experience in battery testing including thermal and impedance spectroscopy
testing. I have +8 years of combined industrial, research and teaching experience.
I have +30 technical papers in refereed
journals and conference proceedings. I have successfully competed for a number
of research grants with a total of +$365k as of October 2017. I won the Distinguished
Researcher award at two educational institutes (2014, 2015 and 2017), and a Graduate
Research Assistantship award at University of Central Florida (2007-2011). I
have +350 citations on Google Scholar, as of October 2017, with h-index and i10-index of 10 each.
