Dr. Ahmad Mayyas
Dr. Mayyas is assistant professor of industrial and system engineering. He joined Khalifa University in fall 2018. Before that Dr. Mayyas worked as a clean energy systems analyst at the national renewable energy laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. He is currently involved in R&D activities for composite materials, design and manufacturing of fuel cells, water electrolysis, and li-ion batteries.
Dr. Mayyas got his BSc in Biosystems Engineering, and MSc in Industrial Engineering from Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST). Then he got his Msc and a Ph.D. in Automotive Engineering from Clemson University, Clemson, South Carolina. After graduation in 2012, Dr. Mayyas worked as a research fellow in the University of California-Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he worked with a team of senior researchers on developing a techno-economic analysis for stationary fuel cells. Dr. Mayyas also got his MBA in managing for sustainability from the University of Colorado in 2018.
Dr. Mayyas has over 15 years of experience in advanced manufacturing analysis including manufacturing of composite materials and nondestructive testing for metal and plastic composites. He has authored and co-authored more than 75 journal publications and technical reports.
