I am currently working as Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering, College of Engineering, Jazan University, Saudi Arabia. I obtained a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Aston University in 2013. I hold a BSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Nasser in Libya and an MSc degree in Chemical Process Technology from Aston University. I have more than 5 years of hands-on industrial experience in powder processing in pharmaceutical manufacturing plants. My current research interest is focused on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling and biomass thermal conversion in fluidized bed reactors.
