Dr Mohammednoor Altarawneh

Lecturer

About me

Modammednoor finished an undergraduate degree in Jordan, a Masters degree from Sydney University and a PhD form the University of Newcastle. He had worked for three years as an Assistant/Associate Professor in Jordan before taking on a University Fellowship at The University of Newcastle in the Discipline of Chemical Engineering (Priority Research Centre for Energy). His research focuses on the investigation of chemical phenomena using quantum chemical methods. His work has resulted in the publication of 45 scholarly journal articles, 20 conference papers and 1 invited plenary lecture. Mohammednoor’s interests are in the fields of reaction mechanisms and kinetics for the formation of organic pollutants and oxidation of hydrocarbons. His research on combustion helped him to be awarded the prestigious Bernard Lewis Fellowship by the International Combustion Institute.
