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.
