Worked on international projects like Tempus projects where one of them aims at establishing a new Master program in sustainable engineering in Birzeit University (ME-Eng) and another Tempus project in the field of modern car maintenance (CODE). He also participated in Erasmus Mundus (Avempace II and Avempace III) and Erasmus plus credit mobility projects with different EU universities like University of Barcelona in Spain and Sapienza University in Italy. Has very tight relationships in research and capacity building with Technical University of Berlin (TUBerlin), Free University of Brussels (ULB), University of Ljubljana (UL), University of L’aquila (UNIVAQ) and University of California – Davis (UCDAvis).
Acts as a Palestinian Higher Education Reforms Expert (HERE) since 2015 till now. Involved in Quality Improvement Fund (QIF) projects funded by the International Bank. Supervised two Doctorate students in European Universities. Supervised several Bachelor graduation projects and Master theses. He is a board member in the Higher Council for Innovation and Excellence in Palestine. He participated in the judgement of severallocal and international innovation competitions like Made in Palestine, Intel Science competition and First Lego League. Founder of specialized associations like the Palestinian Solar and Sustainable Energy Society (PSSES) and active member in similar associations. The author of two books, seventeen journal articles and 32 conference papers. Volunteer reviewer for more than 17 international specialized journals and conferences. Teaching interests in Mechanical Vibrations, Fluid Power Control, Dynamics, Measurements and Sustainable Engineering courses.
