I obtained a BSc in Industrial Engineering and an MSc in Industrial Engineering/Manufacturing and Design at Jordan University, Jordan, and later a PhD from Aston University, Birmingham, UK. I was a professor of Mechatronics Engineering at Al-Balqa' Applied University, Jordan. Prior to that I was an associate professor of Communications and Electronic Engineering at Al-Ahliyya Amman University, Jordan. In January 2014, I started as a lecturer in Mathematics (Non-linearity and Complexity Research Group) at Aston University.
Teaching on the Mathematics programmes:
My research interest is focused on developing reliable control strategies for many-body, multi-scale, stochastic systems exhibiting characteristics such as nonlinearity, uncertainty and hysteresis that will be endemic in future emergent systems. More specifically, my research activities focuses on these three areas: (1) Novel probabilistic control methods based on: Bayesian inference; dynamic programming; fully probabilistic design; and probabilistic pinning control; (2) Randomised distributed control: probabilistic nonlinear control for achieving the desired global behaviour of the network; probabilistic inference methods for message passing; and (3) Probabilistic estimation of the system dynamics: Gaussian description of the system dynamics; Non-Gaussian description of the system dynamics; complex distributed systems’ dynamics (both Gaussian and Non-Gaussian).
