I finished my Ph.D. in December 2010 from the
University of Washington, USA. My research is currently focused on smart
grids, the integration of renewables and electric vehicles in a market environment. I have
several publications in top journals and conferences in these fields. I
won several awards from IEEE, University of Washington, and KFUPM,
honoring the quality of my research.
I have three openings for graduate students to work on the active
projects listed here (Research Projects).
Each of these topics can lead to a PhD/MSc thesis.
Funding is available;
it will be based on your qualifications and performance. For more information,
feel free to contact me.
