Bio

Dr. Mohamed Al Hosani was the first graduate under the Masdar Institute Fellowship Program, obtaining his MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Central Florida, USA, in 2010 and 2013, respectively. There, he worked on developing new techniques for islanding detection and prevention to improve the integrity and performance of distributed generations during islanding events. He received a BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from the American University of Sharjah, UAE, in 2008.

In 2014, Dr. Al Hosani joined the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He was a Visiting Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA, for 8 months during 2015-2016.

Dr. Al Hosani 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 is a professional member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), has published several IEEE conference and journal papers, and serves as a peer reviewer for several journals, including IEEE Transactions on Power Delivery, Energy Conversion, Power Electronics, Industrial Electronics, and Smart Grid.
