Dr. Mohammad Al-Khaleel obtained his BSc in mathematics from Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan in 2000. Then, in 2003 and 2007, respectively, he received his MSc and PhD in applied mathematics (Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing) from McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada. In the same year 2007, he joined the department of mathematics at Yarmouk University as an Assistant Professor. As a result of his accomplishments in research, teaching, and services, he was promoted to Associate Professor.  Dr. Al-Khaleel took a one-year sabbatical leave in 2014 to work as an Associate Professor of mathematics at Dhofar University in Salalah, Oman. In 2016, Dr. Al-Khaleel was appointed as an Assistant Professor in the department of mathematics at Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Abu Dhabi, UAE and afterwards was promoted to Associate Professor of mathematics. During his career, Dr. Al-Khaleel has published research papers in prestigious journals such as SIAM Journal of Numerical Analysis, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, and many others. Additionally, he has attended many international conferences and spent several research periods at different places. Dr. Al-Khaleel has participated actively in a variety of committees, including undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum development committees, recruitment committee and college promotion committee and many others. He has also supervised and co-supervised a  considerable number of postgraduate and undergraduate students and projects. He has frequently been honored and received awards for his academic achievements. He has continuously taken part of grants applications and scientific projects. Dr. Al-Khaleel research is of a multidisciplinary nature but the bulk of it has revolved around developing and implementing efficient and parallel numerical methods as well as analytical methods for solving differential equations (ordinary, partial, and fractional) that appear in many applications in different fields including seismic waves, nanofluid and microfluid dynamics, circuit simulations, and many others. He has also research interest in other areas of mathematics including topics in metric fixed point theory, fractional calculus, numerical parameter optimization, inverse and control problems, and the mathematical background of computer arithmetic circuits.
