Adil Sharag-Eldin, Ph.D.
Adil Sharag-Eldin, Ph.D. LEED Accredited Professional is an associate professor of Architectural Sciences at the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University. He has over 20 of experience as a building scientist in the area of high-performance design, renewable energy use in buildings. He has researched and published extensively in the areas of air movement in enclosed spaces and its impact on the health and comfort of building occupants. Dr. Sharag-Eldin has taught the subject of environmental control systems and high building performance for over 12 years. As a sustainability consultant he worked with major universities in the Middle East. He wrote the sustainability design guidelines for a 20 million sq. ft. industrial incubator project in King Saud University and is working with King Abdul Aziz University in developing their green campus initiative. In 2008 he was invited by the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Ministry of Higher Education) and acted as a an expert to review and recommend sustainability guidelines for the third expansion project of Grand Mosque in Mecca. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, and his Master of Science form the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
