I am currently honor professorial fellow at University of New South Wales UNSW ( Faculty of Science/ Chemistry School ), University of Technology / Sydney (UTS) and University of Western Sydney/Infra structure research engineering .I supervised 46 M.Sc thesis and 25 Ph.D thesis as applied research projects and /or industrial contracts. currently co- supervising two Ph.D students at UWS/Sydney . Have 36 Australian/USA filed inventions including (8 USA patents granted ,25 published filed inventions) .Hold 37 National Iraqi patents, several of them were implemented industrially. Published 7 textbooks. Published more than 250 papers in outstanding international journals and conferences. Consulted and managed several industrial projects in Australia and overseas for production of several industrial products ,concrete hardener, concrete additives (super plasticisers, water proof, ablative thermal insulators, anti corrosion), controlled release fertilisers, hydrogels, fire resistant paints, epoxy resins and their hardeners,and other material s :Ultra high Strength grout ,Highly acid resistant hybrid geoconcrete ,concrete hardening and concrete surfacing products.
My major research fields are preparation & evaluation of new tailor made polymers for various industrial applications and incubating research ideas :as concrete additives, polymeric composites & IPNs, Hydrogels, active ingredient supported polymers, soil stabilisers, conductive polymers,food additives and packaging , fruit preservatives and sustainable environmental projects hydrophilic and hydrophobic active ingredients.
