Starting date
January 1, 2021

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Architectural Engineering from Al Albayt University, Jordan. My ‎graduation project was An ‎‎education city for developing creative ‎thinking skills. I tried to link light and perception during the ‎concept level, I ‎studied how the ‎speed of things relative to the speed of light ‎affects our perception ‎of them and the things ‎which ‎we can call reality. In 2017, I received my master’s degree from The University of Jordan. My thesis was ‎ about how lighting ‎conditions affect emotions and perception: my most important finding was that ‎light influences the recipient’s ‎feelings and emotions.

For the past seven years I was a ‎lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering, AL Albayt University, Jordan. ‎I taught illumination and acoustics in the architecture design studio. ‎As a volunteer I worked at the ‎We Are ‎Jordan Youth Commission. In my role as head of the Committee on Educational ‎Development I led the ‎development of plans designed to increasing the environmental quality of ‎‎neighbourhoods in Jordan.‎

Lighting at un-‎signalled (zebra) pedestrian ‎crossings

I will investigate optimal lighting characteristics, ‎including ‎illuminance, spectrum, and uniformity. The research will include making pedestrians more alert to ‎potential hazards and ‎could enhance visibility and the visual perception to detect dangerous ‎objects.
