He has been an effective associate professor and his teaching interests include pavement materials and design, railway engineering, and transportation engineering. Also he lectures in other universities in Egypt. Dr. Diab also is the responsible for the transportation materials laboratories and transportation consulting in his university. He is a member of the American society of civil engineers. Because of his expertise in the field of transportation consulting, he has helped design different road networks in Egypt. Currently, his research group consists of ten graduate students under his supervision. He entered faculty of engineering in 2000 to study civil engineering and graduated with honors in 2005. From 2005 to 2007 he undertook an engineering tour as a project manager in Hurghada, Egypt. In 2007 he was appointed as a teaching assistant to pursue his teaching and research work. After the completion of his master degree, he received a scholarship to pursue his Ph.D. study as a research assistant at the department of civil and environmental engineering, Michigan Technological University (MTU), USA. During his work at MTU, Dr. Diab also worked in a project on monitoring of water content in pavement materials using wireless, passive embedded sensors. In addition, he helped writing different research proposals submitted to Michigan Department of Transportation, USA. Dr. Diab has multiple research interests in pavement materials, testing and instrumentation, sustainability, modeling, and chemistry of asphalt .
