I worked and published more than 20 research and working papers. I also worked as an advisor to the Ministry of Education in many projects like the 1st strategic plan for HE in Saudi Arabia (AFAQ), and other initiatives. Got my Master in 1989 from Colorado State University, and Ph.D. in 1996 from Kansas State University. I am married to Amal Abdulkareem, the best wife in the world, and we managed to rear seven lovely children, and at my leisure time I love walking, and riding my trike.
