Back

Dr. Mohamed Al Hosani received his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from the American University of Sharjah, UAE, in 2008. After that, he joined the Masdar Institute Fellowship Program to obtain his 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, and the 2009 Sharjah Islamic Bank Research Award. Dr. Al Hosani is a reviewer for several journals including IEEE Transactions in Energy Conversion and Industrial Electronics. 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.
