In return, Dr. Al-Omari was a teaching assistant for graduate level courses in the Bioinformatics program. He also taught an advanced programming course, BINF 6003, titled “A Practical Advanced Programming Course/C++ Object Oriented Design and GPU/CUDA” during summer term of 2014. Moreover, was an instructor for the CUDA teaching center at the University of Georgia.

Dr. Al-Omari is a grant proposal writer and has many published papers and posters in the bioinformatics, numerical methods, and parallel algorithms on the GPGPUs. He attended 5 international conferences that are related to his field. Recently, he has gotten a grant from Nvidia company including that 1) Yarmouk University has been selected as a GPU Education Center around the world. 2) GPU teaching kit consisting of (10) books, one Tesla K40 {active} and two Titan X GPUs  3)  $2500.​With total amount of money $13000.

He is considered to be the first Bioinformatician getting Ph.D. of Bioinformatics in Jordan and might be in the Middle East.

Currently, he is an assistant professor and a researcher at Yarmouk university and his current research interests include parallel computation, systems biology, finite elements method, machine learning and pattern recognition, biological circuits and gene networks, and numerical analysis.


Loves his parents, family, job, and country, in addition to books and nature.
