Mon, 6 June 2022

Dr. Mohammednoor Altarawneh is a chemical engineer with expertise and commitment to quantum chemistry, chemical modelling, thermodynamics and kinetics, as means of gaining insights into formation of pollutants, oxidation of hydrocarbons, catalysis, and properties of materials.  He obtained his PhD from the University of Newcastle, Australia in 2008.  He worked at Murdoch University (Perth, Australia) between 2014 2019 where he was promoted to A/Prof.  Throughout his career, he supervised to completion ~ 20 PhD students.  He co-authored more than 185 articles, with ~ 40% of his articles published in top 10% journals (based on CiteScore). The underlying aim of his publications is to understand how chemical phenomena occur and how to fine-tune the performance of a given chemical reactive system toward the desired application. His work was cited more than 2000 times with an h-index of 23 (Scopus).  His awards on research s achievements include the prestigious Bernard Lewis Fellowship from the Combustion Institute (2012) and the Vice chancellor (VC s) award for early career research excellence in Murdoch University (2016).  At his previous positions, he secured several highly national competitive grants from the Australian Research Council (ARC) on topics spanning spontaneous ignition, and emission of nitrogen-containing pollutants from mining-related activities. He delivered several plenary lectures at international conferences in his field.  He serves as an associate editor in The Journal of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (JTCC) since 2016.

He joined the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering department at UAEU on August 2019. His current research interests focus on the catalytic removal of sulfur from hydrocarbons fuels and chemical recycling of the plastic fraction in the electronic and the electrical waste (e-waste).  He frequently utilizes the high-performance computing (HPC) cluster at the UAEU in carrying out molecular modeling simulations.  On the learning side, he enjoys teaching of chemical reaction engineering and chemical process safety.  Professionally, he is a chartered chemical engineer (Engineers Australia Association).  In his free time, he visits Starbucks and enjoys watching the German Bundesliga matches.
