About Me

I currently hold a position as an associate professor at the chemistry department/ Yarmouk University in Jordan teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in the fields of Organic and Computational chemistry since 2004.

From 2018-2019, I was an Arab Fund Scholar at the University of North Texas/ Prof Mohammad Omary 

From 2011 to 2012, I have managed the Applied Scientific Research Fund – , a non-for-profit company that I co-founded in 2011.


The fund was intended to initiate and support research that will enrich the market with new technological products and ideas and appraise the impact of research upon industrial development.

During those years, we funded more than ten projects, filed three US patents in addition to several local Jordanian patents in the pipeline.


In 2008-2009, I had the honor of joining the research group of the Nobel Laureate Professor Roald Hoffmann at Cornel University via a Fulbright scholarship that I attained from the U.S. Department of State. During that time, I had the privilege of working with Professor Hoffmann in few research projects in the field of computational chemistry and due to the complexity of the project, I had to spend a few months at Yale University in the research group of Professor William Jorgensen.

During the past years I was fortunate to write several successful research grants with collaborators from the United States and Jordan for more than $ 500,000 US.   ​
