University of Mosel (Mechanical Engineeri)
Bradley University (Master's)
Washington State University (PhD)
I hold a PhD in Mechanical Engineering (1983) from Washington State University, Pullman, WA. During my PhD, I was a teaching assistant. After graduation I went to Iraq and worked for 15 years (1983 to 1998) in the renewable and energy efficiency energy field (both in research and administration). I was also teaching at the University in Baghdad on one day per week basis. In 1998, I moved to Bahrain to work at the University of Bahrain (1998-2006) as a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Energy Research Center. During 2006-2007, I was working as a technical advisor and consultant in renewable energy and energy efficiency field at the United Nation Environmental Program for West Asia (UNEP/ROWA).
I came back to the United States in December 2007 to work as a Principal Engineer at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. I retired in February 2013 and moved to the Detroit area to live near my only daughter. I am holder of four patents, author of two books, and have more than one hundred published papers in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
Below is a brief summary of my university teaching experience:
•Teaching Assistant, Washington State University for the years 1979-1982, in the subjects of Thermodynamics, Heat transfer and Machine laboratory.
•Lecturer, in different universities in Baghdad (one day per week) for the years 1985-1998, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in the subjects of Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, Applied Mathematics, Transport Phenomena, Fluid Mechanics, Power Station, Solar Energy, Refrigeration, Air conditioning, Food Storage and Heat Exchanger Design.
•Lecturer, University of Bahrain in the subjects of Thermodynamics, Renewable Energy Engineering and Energy Management, for the years 2000 – 2006.
•Supervision of 10 MS.C and PhD students.
I have a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from a very well known and in the top list of US Universities in this field.
I have a very long and excellent experience in the areas of thermal science, renewable energy and energy efficiency.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have a PhD in mechanical engineering from Washington State University. I could teach thermal courses in addition to courses in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
