Anas I. Abutaha completed his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics and Nuclear Physics at the University of Jordan in 2007 and 2010, respectively, with first of class honor. In 2015, he has earned his PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and his dissertation title was “Nanostructured Thermoelectric Oxides for Energy Harvesting Applications” under the supervision of Prof. Husam Alshareef. During his PhD , Anas has focused on understanding and improving the thermoelectric properties of metal oxide thin films and superlattices fabricated by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). He could develop highly efficient, robust thermoelectric superlattices based on SrTiO3 materials, which can be used in high-temperature applications. Anas is the grand prize winner (10k $US) of Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge Award (SISCA) held at KAUST in 2014, and the third place winner of Sustainability at My School Competition held in Materials Research Society 2014 Fall meeting in Boston, USA. In 2016, he became a research scientist at Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), a research institute of Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore. His current research project focuses on developing environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and easy-to-fabricate materials for thermoelectric applications. More specifically, Anas is studying the thermal and electrical transport in hybrid (organic and inorganic) materials, and trying to enhance their thermoelectric performance for the purpose of inventing flexible, wearable, and energy-harvesting devices from waste heat.
