Recently completed research projects

  • Toward a Mixed-Mode Cooling Approach in Residential Buildings of Saudi Arabia: Performance Assessment of Hybrid Ventilated Buildings


I received my Bachelor's degree in Interior Design in 2012 and started my career in Academia at Jubail University College.

By 2017, I received an MSc in Architecture (Sustainable Architecture) from Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University (IAU). For my master thesis, I investigated the applicability and performance of the mixed-mode cooling approach (Hybrid Ventilation) in residential buildings of Saudi Arabia.
