29/2/2016-now: I joint University of Huddersfield in 29th of February 2016 as a Research Fellow at Institute of Railway research, currently I am Working on Low Adhesion Braking Model (LABRADOR) Project.
I have developed a wide range of skills and knowledge while doing his postgraduate degrees, and BSc degree. I have a PhD degree from Cranfield University. In my thesis I have used optimal control and Model Predictive Control (MPC) techniques to achieve an on-line optimal control algorithm for Unmanned Arial Vehicle UAV. Also I have used Fuzzy Logic Control (FLC) techniques for modelling a human behaviour.
I also have worked in a collaborative research project for Schlumberger Company at Cranfield University as a Master by Research student. This project was to find a mathematical model and design a control system for a Rotary Steerable System (RSS).
I have obtained MSc degree with distinction in (Automation and Control) from Newcastle University. In my MSc degree, I have applied advanced control systems techniques to achieve my thesis which is titled: (High Performance Control of Sensorless Electric Drives: State Estimation & Parameter Identification Approach).
I have obtained my BSc (Hons) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and then have obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Control Systems Engineering from University of Aleppo. During my journey in academia I have built a comprehensive understanding of advanced control systems, such as optimal control systems, model predictive control and multivariable control systems.
Also I have gained an excellent experience in mathematical modelling, control systems design, simulation using MATLAB/Simulink, and programming using C\C++ as this was an essential part of my research.
Also I have gained a good experience in supervision and teaching as I have worked part time as Lab demonstrator at Cranfield University helping with supervision of MSc students’ projects, and demonstrating Lab sessions.
In addition to my academic experience I have an industrial experience as I have worked for two years at Syrian Gas Company as a Field Engineer in gas turbine and instrumentation.
