Personal profile

Personal Statement

I come from diverse backgrounds and experiences. I started my professional life as a Marine Engineer onboard commercial ships for more than 10 years. Then, 7 years of extensive teaching experiences as a Lecturer in the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transportation (AASTMT). Currently, I am a Research Associate at Strathclyde University in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME).

I have an MSc. degree with distinction in Maritime Energy Management (MEM) from the World Maritime University (WMU). Also awarded the WMU Chancellor's medal of honour for academic excellence.

I have done some researches in Maritime Energy Efficiency by using non-classical methods (a combination of regression and ANN). I have good experience in data modelling, artificial neural network, MR modelling, risk analysis and statistical modelling and analysis. Currently, I am involved in the EU-funded SAFEMODE project which increases my interests in the field of human factors in the maritime domain.
