​​ABOUT ME

1 small.jpg
Currently, I'm an assistant professor in the department of civil engineering at Yarmouk University (Irbid, Jordan).  My background includes over seven years of industry experience with private sector (as a Traffic-Engineer / Transportation-Planner) and research/academia (as a PhD Graduate Researcher). I have experience in traffic engineering and transportation planning studies including but not limited to the following: Analysis and design of intersections/interchanges, traffic impact studies, road safety audit, and development of public transportation studies. I was involved in lecturing at training programs for the following topics: Traffic modeling and simulation, public transportation concepts, urban transportation planning, and computer software applications in transportation engineering (e.g., VISSIM, VISUM, CORSIM, HCS+ and SIDRA).  I have M.S. degree in transportation engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology. My thesis topic focused on evaluation of strategies for traffic management using simulation. I have Ph.D. degree in transportation engineering from the University of Central Florida. My dissertation topic focused on evaluating the effectiveness of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) strategies using new methodologies.
