Ala’aldeen Al-Halhouli obtained a B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Mu’tah University, Jordan in 1999, a M.Sc. degree from the University of Jordan in 2001, a Ph.D. degree from the University of Jordan in 2007 and a habilitation degree with Venia Legendi on microfluidics from the “Technische Universität Braunschweig” in Germany in 2013. In 2005, he received a DAAD scholarship to conduct his Ph.D. research in the area of viscous micropumps at the Institute of Microtechnology (IMT) of Technische Universität Braunschweig. Since 2007, he is working as a research associate and lecturer at IMT. He has special interest in micropumps design, simulation and testing, lab-on-a-chip, electromagnetic based actuators, MEMS and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Dr. Al-Halhouli published more than 50 papers in international Journals and conference proceedings. He received several Awards such as the Best Poster Award in the MEMS Alliance Georgetown University, Washington DC, USA, 2009, and the Cray Award for the best published paper in Microtechnology/Microsystem technology, Braunschweig, Germany, 2007. Dr. Al-Halhouli is a member of several associations such as Jordan Engineers Association in Jordan, German-Palestinian Association and the German-Arabic Cultural Center in Braunschweig, Germany.
