Dr. Ibraheem Almansouri joined Masdar Institute of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) Department in June of 2015.

He obtained his BSc in Electrical Engineering from the American University of Sharjah in 2008. Following that, he joined the Masdar Institute Fellowship Program to obtain his postgraduate qualifications. He received his MSc in Renewable Energy Management from the University of Freiburg in Germany. He conducted his Master’s thesis at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy System ISE in 2010. Dr. Almansouri also completed his PhD in Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering from the University of New South Wales (Australia) in 2015. His PhD thesis focused on Silicon Cells for Tandem Solar Cell Structures.
