Abdul-Halim M. Jallad received the PhD degree from the University of Surrey in 2009, and the BEng degree in from the University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom, in 2003 after receiving several academic achievement prizes. At the University of Surrey he was a member of the Surrey Space Centre where he was involved in several research and development projects in collaboration with Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL), a world leader in the development of small satellites.

He then joined Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan in 2009 as an assistant professor. While at Al-Zaytoonah University he founded and directed the Advanced Embedded Systems Research Lab. In 2011 he served as the Chair of the Computer and Communications Engineering (CCE) Department. He was awarded with the Jordan Engineers Association prize for innovative young engineers in 2011.

His research interests include embedded systems, system-on-chip design, distributed embedded computing, spacecraft on-board data handling, middleware design, VLSI design and reconfigurable architectures.
