Jamal Khatib, BEng, MEng(Sc), PhD, CEng, FICE, FHEA, EUR ING, PG.Cert. Ed, PG.Cert. PjtMgt, Cert. EnvMgt, MEPC, MOIA, is presently Professor of Civil Engineering (Sustainable Construction Materials), Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Wolverhampton (UoW) - UK. His academic career began in 1987 as a Research Student/Assistant/Fellow, at the University of Aberdeen. In 1994 he moved to take another Research Fellow post at the University of Glamorgan (now University of South Wales) until 1997. He then took a permanent position as a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU). During that time and due to research collaboration with IMUST-China, he was awarded the title of Honorary Professor in 2001. After 9 years at SHU, he moved to the University of Wolverhampton (UoW) as a Reader in Civil Engineering and became a Professor in July12. In 2010, he achieved the Chartered Engineer status of the Institution of Civil Engineer (ICE). Areas of research specialism include a number of sustainable construction materials themes: a) use variety of waste materials in the production of construction/structural materials, b) novel construction materials (e.g. metakaolin), c) concrete subjected to harsh environments, d) lightweight and self-compacting concrete and e) behaviour of structural materials. Prof Khatib was one of the early UK researchers who conducted research on metakaolin as partial substitution of cement and his publications in this areahave been extensively cited.According to the ISI Web of Science and Scopus Prof Khatib has an H-index of 16 and 19 respectively. Microsoft Academic classified Prof Khatib as one of the top authors in cement with a G-Index of 18 http://academic.research.microsoft.com/RankList?entitytype=2&topDomainID=12&subDomainID=1&last=0&start=1&end=100 Also and according to Google scholar there is more than 3000 citations, an H-index of 23 and i10-index of 33 http://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=eRDOWn8AAAAJ Many papers were rankedas the top 25 articles. The products of his extensive research activities have been comprehensively disseminated through: ~ 400 refereed academic journal & conference papers; text books, research seminars and workshops; articles, features in the construction press and others. He acts as a reviewer to over 70 international refereed journals, book publishers and others. He sits on the technical committees of many international research conferences. He is an Editorial Board member of four academic Journals and an Associate Editor for the Journal of Emerging Trend in Engineering & Applied Sciences. Prof Khatib was a submitting staff member for the RAE/REF 1996 (Glam), 2001 (SHU) and 2008 & 2014 (UoW). Prof Khatib is a recipient of research funding from the European Union (EU), the British Council, The Institution of Structural Engineers and the Royal Society. He established strong research links with Universities across the world; China, Algeria, India, Turkey; Nigeria, Kazakhstan, Iraq, Ukraine, US, Canada, France, Finland, Portugal, Slovenia, South Africa, Austria & Australia.
