AHMAD H. ALOMARI, Ph.D.
UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA, Go Knights!
An Assistant professor in transportation engineering
at Yarmouk University (Irbid, Jordan). My
background includes over seven years of industry and research experience. My
experience focuses mainly on traffic operations (analysis and design), traffic modeling
and simulation, public transportation concepts, urban transportation planning, traffic safety, traffic accident analysis, traffic calming
and management, intelligent transportation systems, and computer
software applications in transportation engineering (e.g., VISSIM, VISUM,
CORSIM, HCS+ and SIDRA).
Latest Accomplishments: UCF Students and Grads Win Two TRB Best Paper Awards in the Transportation Research Board (TRB) 95th Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., USA, 2016.

2015 Best Freeway Operations Paper Award for Wrong-way Driving Multifactor Risk-Based Model for Florida Interstates and Toll Facilities.
This paper was chosen from more than 80 submitted during the 2015 paper review cycle. UCF doctoral student John Rogers is the first author on this paper; his coauthors are Professor Haitham Al-Deek and Ahmad Alomari, who recently received his doctorate from UCF, Adrian Sandt, who is working on his Ph.D. under Professor Al-Deek's supervision. The research was funded through an STC Opportunity & Exploratory Grant, with matching funds from Florida's Turnpike Enterprise.
2015 Best Regional Transportation Systems Management and Operations Paper Award for the paper titled Evaluation of Conditional Transit Signal Priority Technology for Regional Implementation. Authors include Professor Al-Deek, John Rogers, and Dr. Alomari. Current UCF doctoral student Adrian Sandt and UCF graduate Dr. Frank Consoli contributed to these papers as well.
