Associate Professor (with Tenure) since Jan. 2020 and Erasmus+ certified trainer. He is an IEEE,EMBS and CIS Senior Member. Became the first Jordanian Nvidia Deep Learning Institute (DLI) Certified Instructor and DLI University Ambassador in April 2020. He received a B.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan, in 2004. He was a teaching assistant and a lab engineer with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, at Yarmouk University (YU), from 2004 to 2010. He was involved in more than 30 different projects on computers, communication, and electronic engineering. He received a grant of over $150,000 from YU to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Bioinformatics and in the same theme, he received a Teaching Assistant grant of over $133,000 from The University of Georgia (UGA)/USA, which is considered the oldest public university in the US and one of the biggest and the topmost ranked university as well. Dr. Al-Omari was a member of Professor Jonathan Arnold's research group with the University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA, on systems biology and genetic networks.


Dr. Al-Omari focuses on the complex dynamics and regulatory mechanisms of the biological clock in Neurospora crassa and encompasses a wide range of topics and methodologies, demonstrating his expertise in machine learning, deep learning, big data, numerical methods, circadian rhythms, computational modeling, and parallel computing. revealing the complex interactions among genes and proteins involved in circadian rhythms and providing insights into the fundamental regulatory mechanisms underpinning the biological clock. Additionally, I possess extensive knowledge and proficiency in machine learning and deep learning techniques and apply these cutting-edge techniques in the fields of bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, and health informatics to tackle complex problems and extract valuable insights from large-scale biological and healthcare data. By leveraging machine learning and deep learning algorithms, my contribution develops predictive models, pattern recognition systems, and data-driven approaches that enable precise analysis, interpretation, and decision-making in these interdisciplinary domains. My research bridges the gap between computational biology and informatics, paving the way for innovative applications in precision medicine, disease diagnostics, and personalized healthcare and medicine.​

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


Dr. Al-Omari is a grant proposal writer and has numerous published papers and posters in bioinformatics, numerical methods, and parallel algorithms on GPGPUs. For his high contribution and collaboration he has Erados # of 2 and he is the editor member of PLOS ONE Journal and​ Applied Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing. He participated in 5 international conferences that are related to his field.  He received 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.​The total amount of money is $13000.

He is considered to be the first Bioinformatician getting a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics in Jordan.

He was an assistant professor and a researcher at YU from 2015 to 2020. 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.
