Dr. Khaleel is the Executive Director of the Qatar Energy and Environment Research Institute. Prior to his employment at the Qatar Foundation, he was the Director of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Computational Sciences and Mathematics (CSM) Division and a Laboratory Fellow. He was the co-Direcor of the Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing (NIAC) located at the University of Washington, Seattle, Washington.
Dr. Khaleel is a registered professional engineer in the State of Washington. He is a member of the Washington State Academy of Sciences, a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers. He is an associate editor for the ASME Journal of Engineering Materials Technology; Computers, Materials and Continua; and the ASCE Lecture Notes in Mechanics.
Prior to leading the CSM Division and NIAC, Moe has held multiple senior management and leadership roles, including managing PNNL's hydrogen and transportation programs, the advanced manufacturing product line, and computational mechanics and materials behavior group. He received a lifetime achievement award for his contributions to computational engineering and fuel cell technologies at the 2007 International Joint Conference on Knowledge Management for Composite Materials, Nanosciences, and Fuel Cells. Other notable awards include a 2000 award for Excellence in Technology Transfer from the Federal Laboratory Consortium, recognizing his efforts in transferring a technology for superplastic forming of aluminum to General Motor Company and the ASME International, McGrattan Literature Award for authoring the outstanding paper in the Journal of Pressure Vessel Technology in 1998, "Effects of Flaw Sizing on Reliability of Piping."
Moe is an Adjunct Professor at Washington State University's School of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. He held graduate faculty advisor positions at the Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France; University of Metz, Metz, France. Dr. Khaleel published over 250 journal articles.Research Interests
