On leave of absence

I am a professor of Environmental Sciences and Resources Management at the Departme​nt of Earth and Environmental SciencesI joined Yarmouk University in Feb. 2009 following my graduation from University of Nevada, Reno, USA in Dec. 2008 with a Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Health. Prior to receiving my Ph.D degree, I earned a master's degree in Civil Engineering-Environmental Engineering from Technical University Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH), Germany in 2002.

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 experience.

I have a proven track record in research with over 40 articles in multidisciplinary environmental topics.

In addition to my publications, I have a patent entitled "Nitrogen Fixation by Titanium Dioxide", which was 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.
