Dr. Ali Diabat received his MSc degree in Operations Research from North Carolina State University, USA (2003) and his PhD in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University, USA (2008). He is currently an Associate Professor of Engineering Systems and Management at Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in Abu Dhabi, which he joined in June 2008.

Prior to joining the Masdar Institute, Dr. Diabat worked as a graduate instructor at Purdue University for four years where, in addition to being an outstanding graduate student (GPA: 4.00/4.00), he received a number of academic distinctions, including an Outstanding Graduate Instructor Award and an Excellence in Teaching Award. Dr. Diabat’s industry experience includes working as a business analyst in the transportation industry and as an operations research analyst in the banking and beverages industries. His current research focuses on sustainable supply chain optimization, capacity expansion and resource allocation, production planning inventory management, and renewable energy optimization models. Since joining Masdar Institute, Dr. Diabat has published over 70 research papers (over 50 journal papers and over 20 conference papers) in leading journals and for international conference proceedings.

Dr. Diabat was the recipient of the 2012 Excellence in Teaching Award from Masdar Institute, an achievement of special significance as it was the first award of its kind offered at the Institute. In 2014, Dr. Diabat also received the Best Faculty Research Award from the Department of Engineering Systems and Management at Masdar Institute.
