In spite of the fact that we do not have graduate students in applied physics program, yet ,the latest successfully completed (2007) project was to investigation the thermal properties of building materials in UAE. The project was granted more than ninety nine thousand Dirhams (99,650 AED) through the college of research and Graduate studies at UOS. - I was an active member of two former research groups at UOS , namely: Radiation Science and Technology Research Group at UOS ( 5 members) the Acoustics Research Group at UOS (5 members). We have got several grants to support the activities of the groups during the period 2006-2009. We won, as members of RSTR group, the best research group award, nominated during the 5th annual scientific research form at UOS (23-24 April 2009). - In the Last two year, as PI, I have applied for a project entitled “Thermography in Infra-Red Image Processing and Data Analysis” The grant amounts to One Million UAE Dirhams ( 1000 000 Dhs) from the National Research Foundation(NFR) in UAE. The project passed the evaluation of first and second stages. Unfortunately, we did not get to the third final stage; however, to seek financial sport for such relatively large budget from different sources, two modified sub-project drafts of the proposal is now in process to be submitted. One to King Saud University in Saudi Arabia and the other one to the College of Research & Higher Studies at UOS.

During the period 1983-Present time, I have been involved in teaching physics courses. I was supervising the establishment of physics curriculum and the basic physics laboratories at the University of Sharjah. I have taught all the physics service courses offered by the Applied physics Department to all relevant colleges in UOS. Some of these courses are required by other colleges such as Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry Pharmacy and Health Sciences Colleges. Recentely, I am involved in the developments of the teaching methodology using virtual teaching tools
