Dr. Awadallah has a background in materials science and engineering. His main consulting area is energy generation and storage systems, including batteries, fuel cells, and photovoltaic solar cells. Dr. Awadallah has experience in advanced electrode fabrication for energy devices, especially in lithium-ion batteries which find applications in electric vehicles (EV), consumer electronics, power tools, and medical devices. He has extensive experience in various electrochemical testing and failure analysis techniques including cyclic charge/discharge, cyclic voltammetry (CV), Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), Linear Sweep Voltammetry (LSV), and Galvanostatic Intermittent Titration Test (GITT), etc. Dr. Awadallah has mastered a variety of materials characterization and testing techniques including microscopy: Optical microscopes (OM) & Scanning Electron microscopes (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman Spectroscopy, UV-VIS Spectroscopy, Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), metallographic examination, and mechanical testing.

Dr. Awadallah earned his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Florida International University where he developed an advanced in-situ Raman spectroscopy system to study real-time changes in various energy materials. The in-situ Raman spectroscopy system was successfully used to investigate critical phase transformation and structural changes in Kesterite copper zinc tin sulfide (CZTS) quaternary material which finds applications in photovoltaic solar and Lead magnesium niobate which is used in ceramic capacitors and ultrasound transducers. Dr. Awadallah pursued his postdoctoral studies at FIU where he conducted research on electrode materials, electrolyte formulations, and scalable synthesis methods to develop high-energy-density lithium-ion and lithium-sulfur batteries for applications in EV.
