AHMAD H. ALOMARI, Ph.D., M.ASCE, M.ITE
UNIVERSITY OF CENTRAL FLORIDA, Go Knights!
An Assistant Professor at Yarmouk University (Irbid, Jordan). Started working at Yarmouk University, officially, in June 2016. The background includes over twelve years of industry experience with the private sector (as a traffic engineer and transportation planner) and research/academia (as a researcher).
Field experience varies in traffic engineering and transportation planning projects/studies including but not limited to traffic operations studies such as analysis and design of intersections/interchanges, intelligent transportation system studies such as TSP applications, traffic impact studies, traffic safety studies such as wrong-way driving and road safety audit, and development of public transportation studies. Also, there was involvement in lecturing at training program centers 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).
My M.Sc. degree was in transportation engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology. The thesis topic focused on the evaluation of strategies for traffic management using simulation. My Ph.D. degree was also in transportation engineering from the University of Central Florida. The dissertation topic focused on evaluating the effectiveness of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) strategies using new methodologies.
