Back

Dr. Mohamed Al Hosani received his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the American University of Sharjah in 2008. After that, he joined the Masdar Institute Fellowship Program in 2008 to obtain MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida, Orlando, USA, in 2010 and 2013, respectively. His PhD work focuses on the Development of Transient and Distributed Algorithms to Improve Islanding Detection Capability of Inverter Based Distributed Generation.

Dr. Al Hosani is currently an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at Masdar Institute. He is the recipient of a number of awards including the 2008 IEEE Myron Zucker Industry Applications Award, the 2008 National Advisory Council Research Award, the 2009 Sharjah Islamic Bank Research Award, and the 2014 Sheikh Rashid Award for Academic Excellence. Dr. Al Hosani has several IEEE conference and journal publications and is also a reviewer for several journals including IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, Energy Conversion, Industrial Electronics, and Smart Grid. He is also a professional member of IEEE. His main research interests include islanding detection algorithms, distributed generation protection and control, and micro-grid stability analysis.
