About Me

I received a B.Sc. degree from the Electronics and Communications Engineering Department at the University of Baghdad in 1998, an M.Sc. degree from the same department in 2001. In 2016 I obtained a master of engineering in quality systems engineering from CIISE at Concordia University- Canada, and recently (2020) I completed my Ph.D. degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Concordia University- Canada.

As for my professional experience, I have been in the educational domain since 1998 where I have worked as Lab instructor at Baghdad University in Iraq, head of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) department and teacher of computer science at International Academic School in Abu Dhabi-UAE. And as an ICT lead at Institute of Applied Technology in Abu Dhabi- UAE, and recently as teaching assistant and graduate research assistant at Concordia university in Canada, as well as, lead instructor for the community Initiative program offered by blue berry wallet inc. also in Canada.

I have had extensive experience teaching a variety of engineering courses, such as; Systems Engineering Maintenance Management, System Reliability, Introduction to discrete mathematics, neural networks, and almost all the courses related to quality in engineering.

The nature of my experience has prepared me to foster the transition from a strict reliance on traditional lecturing to a combination of critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and research abilities in every aspect of my teaching.

I am a member of different prestigious and reputed organizations such as; IEEE, IISE, ASQ, AAAI, and Microsoft.


Research Summary:

In the era of smart manufacturing and industrial internet of things (IoT), there is a high global demand and strategic urgency for development of novel and innovative smart and reliable prognostic health management (PHM) technologies to cope with maintenance development tasks of complex industrial and safety-critical systems.
Prognostic health management is an enabling discipline in industrial engineering that monitors the reliability of complex engineering infrastructure with the objective of improving maintenance effectiveness, safe operability, and enhanced performance. The focus of the PHM is centered on two core dimensions; the first is taking into account the behavior and the evolution over time of a fault once it occurs, while the second one aims at estimating/predicting the remaining useful life (RUL) during which a device can perform its intended function.
My research has spanned several areas with the goal of developing new theories and methodologies for PHM algorithms, strategies, and techniques. Degradation modeling and RUL estimation algorithms along with machine learning form the mainstream of my research. Recent catastrophic incidents, such as the collapse of Morandi bridge and the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster, occurred mainly due to a lack of proper PHM considerations resulting in considerable loss of human lives as well as serious/major environmental damages. Such accidents and many others could have been prevented if proper maintenance procedures were implemented. All those events coupled with aging critical infrastructures call for an urgent quest to design advanced and innovative prognostic solutions to efficiently utilize multi-sensor streaming data sources
