Educational Background

Research Activities

  • Investigation into the consequences of methods used to reduce the cost of production of moulded parts by the injection moulding process.
  • Improve the efficiency of current processing as a result of effective management of heat transfer and the possibility of reducing part weight by improving material performance.
  • Conventional and Pulse cooling technologies.
  • Morphology, nucleation and growth rate analysis of polymers.
  • Isothermal and non-isothermal crystallization of semi-crystalline polymers.
  • Modelling and simulation of non-isothermal crystallization kinetics.
  • Effects of pigments, nucleating agents and recycled polymer on morphology and crystallisation of semi-crystalline polymers.
  • Mechanical properties of extruded and injection moulded semi-crystalline polymers.
  • Effects of pigments, nucleating agents, recycling and orientation on the physical ageing behaviour of polymers.
  • Solid, liquid, and suspension fertilizers production an addition to treatment of Jordanian wet process phosphoric acid.
  • Production of urea phosphate and mono potassium phosphate pure crystals using untreated Jordanian wet process phosphoric acid.
