Ghaddar

Nesreen Ghaddar, associate provost and professor of mechanical engineering at AUB, has been awarded the Abdul Hameed Shoman Award for Arab Researchers in engineering sciences for her “distinct and distinguished scientific work published in renowned international scientific magazines as well as for the establishment of labs specialized in [her] field.”

Ghaddar shared the award with Salah Sabry Ahmed Obayya from Egypt, an associate professor in the Center for Photonics and Smart Materials (CPSM) at Zewail City of Science and Technology.

She was among nine chosen for the award out of 142 candidates who competed in six categories: Medical and Health Sciences, Engineering Sciences, Basic Sciences, Art and Human, Social and Administrative Sciences, Agricultural Sciences, Applied Sciences.

Established in 1982 the Shoman Award has recognized more than 365 Arab researchers representing 59 Arab universities and scientific institutes in various Arab countries. The award recognizes scientific works “whose dissemination and publication will lead to promoting applied and scientific knowledge, increasing awareness on the culture of scientific research, and will contribute to solving problems of priority at the local, regional and international levels.”

Ghaddar has made major fundamental and applied research contributions to the field of green engineering.
Her research has focused on energy-efficient buildings, including energy-efficient air conditioning, renewable energy systems, energy management, and human bioheat modelling and thermal comfort. She also made pioneering investigations to understand the interaction between human thermal and clothing ventilation systems. Ghaddar adopts an interdisciplinary approach in her research, utilizing concepts and advances from various fields to develop green engineering solutions that impact people’s quality of life, the environment, and the economy.
The award distribution ceremony will take place in October.
