Welcome Dr. Iyad Hijazi

Welcome Dr. Iyad Hijazi as an Assistant Professor in Engineering.
Dr. Iyad Hijazi received his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Kansas State University. His Masters research was in the area of Computer Aided Design. On completion of his Masters degree he worked in industry for over ten years. He then returned to New Mexico State University where he earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering with research in the area of Computational Nanomaterial. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at The Georgia Institute of Technology, and served as an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd University in Al Khobar Saudi Arabia.
During his Postdoctoral research at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Dr. Hijazi investigated adsorption and diffusion of small molecules in nanocrystalline materials, and explored the influence of framework flexibility on adsorption and diffusion in small-pore zeolite materials used as gas separation membranes. Dr. Hijazi employs atomistic modeling techniques to probe for nanomaterial with unique properties. He conducted extensive empirical and first principle studies of metallic nanoclusters and alloys. His research has been published in a number of high-quality, peer-reviewed journals.
Dr. Hijazi’s office is located in Weisberg Engineering Lab EL109A and can be contacted via email at hijazii@marshall.edu
