Lecturer, Department of Mathematics and Natural Sciences
M.S. Missouri University of Science and Technology
B.S. Kirkuk College of Technology
Ahmed received his bachelor’s degree in Fuel and Energy Engineering from Kirkuk College of Technology in 2010. In September, 2012 he was awarded a full scholarship to study for a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering by The Higher Committee for Education Development in Iraq. In May, 2016 he received his Master of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with a 4.0 GPA from Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO, USA. He also worked as a graduate teaching assistant and a graduate research assistant while studying for his master’s degree. Additionally, he spent some time working in the industry before joining AUIS in August, 2016 as a lecturer of chemistry and physical science labs. His research interests include hydrodynamics of bubble and slurry bubble column reactors for alternative clean fuel production.
