Biography

Dr. Mayyas is an Asst. Professor of Automotive Engineering at the Polytechnic School at Arizona State University ASU-CTI. He is also on the graduate faculty for the Simulation, Modeling, and Applied Cognitive Science (SMACS) PhD program. He is currently the Lead Faculty Advisor for the Arizona State University-Advanced Vehicle Technology EcoCAR 3 Program.

Dr. Mayyas received his PhD in 2010 from Automotive Engineering Department at Clemson University-International Center for Automotive Research “CU-ICAR” with focus on thermal modeling and monitoring of on-board hybrid electric powertrains. After graduation Mayyas worked as a Post-Doctoral Scholar at CU-ICAR for two years with a focus on developing new testing strategies for on-board hybrid eclectic powertrains called “Vehicle Hardware In-the-Loop” VHiL.  Mayyas led several funded projects by the US Army Automotive Research Center ARC and the Toyota Motor Corp. TMC. Dr. Mayyas’s work is well published in the Journals of Energy Research, Applied Enenrgy and the Journal of Power Sources. Prior to joining Clemson University, Dr. Mayyas served as a senior automotive engineer at the transportation division of the Jordanian Police Department. During his work in Jordan, Mayyas conducted a research on occupant safety and developed several systems and modules to improve the Police fleet performance; one of his patented developments was awarded the best invention award.
