Majd G. Batarseh received her B.Sc. degree from the University of Jordan in 2004 and the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, in 2007 and 2010, respectively, all in Electrical Engineering. She was the recipient of the most prestigious Presidential Fellowship at UCF where she worked on industry and government funded research projects as a Research Assistant at the University of Central Florida and with the Florida Power Electronics Center from 2006 until 2009. Upon graduation, she briefly worked as projects assistant in a UK based owner and operator of purpose-built self-propelled jack-up vessels for offshore Wind Turbine installations at the North Sea and in 2013, she joined Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), Amman Jordan. Dr. Batarseh currently serves as the Head of the Computer Engineering Department at PSUT and is also an Assistant Professor at the Electrical Engineering Department – Electrical Power and Energy Engineering Program, where she teaches electrical engineering classes, mentors and supervises BSc and MSc students and conducts research focusing on Power Electronics, Renewable Energy Systems mainly Photovoltaics, Smart Grids and education. She also participates in many European funded Capacity Building projects.
