Research Description

I am working toward my Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering. My research focus is on:

  • Advanced reactor design and thermo-fluid analysis.
  • Integrated dynamic probabilistic risk assessment for nuclear power plants.


I received my Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering from Oregon State University in Spring 2017 and Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering from King Abdelaziz University in Spring 2021. I have been doing research in the field of neutronics analysis and computational method in nuclear corrosion for advance and small modular reactor SMR. In 2019, I have joined for eight months the Water-Cooled Reactors team at the international atomic Energy agency IAEA as intern Supervised by Prof. Tatjana Jevremovic.
