Abdel Ra’ouf Mayyas is an Assistant Professor of Automotive Engineering in the Polytechnic School, one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. He is also on the graduate faculty for the Human Systems Engineering Ph.D. program.

Mayyas received his Ph.D. in 2010 from the Automotive Engineering Department at Clemson University-International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) with a focus on thermal modeling and monitoring of on-board hybrid electric powertrains. After graduation Mayyas worked as a post-doctoral scholar at CU-ICAR for two years with a focus on developing new testing strategies for on-board hybrid eclectic powertrains called “Vehicle Hardware In-the-Loop” VHiL.

Mayyas has led several funded projects by the US Army Automotive Research Center ARC and the Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC). His work is well published in the Journal of Energy Research and the Journal of Power Sources. Previously Mayyas served as a senior automotive engineer at the transportation division of the Jordanian Police Department. During his work in Jordan, Mayyas conducted a research on occupant safety and developed several systems and modules to improve the Police fleet performance. One of his patented developments was awarded the best invention award.
