Being a graduate of both American and German
universities, I especially possess solid practical and technical knowledge in
the field of environmental science, health and management. With additional ten years at Yarmouk University and other universities in Jordan, I developed a
rich teaching experience in graduate and undergraduate courses and advanced research
I have a proven track
record in research with over 31 articles (largely published in ISI journals) (from
2009-2019, with an average of 3 articles per year) in multidisciplinary
In addition to my publications, I have a patent entitled "Nitrogen Fixation by Titanium Dioxide", which wa issued in 2015 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (No. 9,029,282). This patent has an important
implication for generating nitrate (fertilizer) by utilizing heat and/or
sunlight and recyclable TiO2 semiconductor, in a sustainable manner.
I have been the vice dean for scientific research and graduate studies. Also, I directed the UNESCO Chair for Desert Studies
and Desertification Control and the Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences
at Yarmouk University and blended my academic expertise with additional
administrative and unique research experiences. I also served as a member of the Climate Change Thematic Research
Group of the National Climate Change Committee in Jordan.
