Mohammad Al-Nimr received his Ph.D. degree (1991) in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Mich, USA. He then joined the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Jordan University of Science and Technology, Jordan, where he has been teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in thermal power while conducting research. He has published about 230 articles in the areas of heat transfer (macroscale heat transfer, microscale heat transfer, heat transfer in porous media, classical heat transfer models, thermal and hydrodynamics behavior of microchannels, and so forth), mathematical modeling, and different fields of energy (energy storage, generation, conversion, management, saving, renewable, and so forth). He was awarded King Abdullah II Award for Innovation (2010), Scopus Award for Distinguished Researchers (2009), the Abed-Alhameed Shoman Award for Arab Scientists (1994), the Jordan University of Science and Technology medal for distinguished scientific and academic achievement two times (1997, 2006), the Hisham Hijjawi Award (2003), the Jordanian Writers Society Award for Short Stories (2004), and the Mechanical Engineering Department Award at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (1991). He has the highest number of publications in Jordan as mentioned in a study about the status of the scientific research in OIC (Organization of Islamic Countries) member states and conducted by the COMSTECH. He was the Coordinator of Tempus European Joint project. He worked many times as an expert to evaluate the EU projects of Tempus, FP7, and Erasmus Mundus programs. He acted as an Editor of the International Journal of Applied Engineering Research for 3 years, and he is acting now as an Associate Editor for 12 journals such as Energy Conversion and Management, Energy-The International Journal, International Journal of Thermophysics, Jordanian Journal of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, The Open Thermodynamics Journal, and others.
