Current Role/Title/Years at RIT:
Associate Professor/ First Year at RIT
I taught several course such as: Land Use Planning, Contracts and Specifications, Civil 3D, Transportation engineering, Civil Graphics, Labor Relations, Route Surveying, Statics and Dynamics, Engineering Drawing, Descriptive Geometry, Construction Methods and Equipments.
I have over 30 years of experience in Civil Engineering Design and Construction Projects such as Highways & Roads, Subdivisions, Commercial and Industrial Developments. I owned Engineering & Surveying firm for 12 years.
I developed a computer simulation model to simulate traffic behavior at Merges on Expressways and Highways. The model was calibrated and validated using field data. The simulation model has been applied to develop regression models to predict delay and capacity at freeway and highway merges.
I taught at the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Basra-Iraq. I have compiled Civil Engineering Specifications in Iraq.
Areas of Interest, Scholarly Work, Research
Study the safety and efficiency of transportation systems, and the effect on traffic and pedestrians.
