" Dr. Mazen Al-Kheetan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Mutah University, Jordan. He obtained his PhD degree in Civil Engineering from Brunel University London, UK in 2019. He has a Master's degree in Highways and Transportation from The University of Nottingham, UK (2015). He also has a BEng degree in Civil Engineering from Mutah University, Jordan (2011).

Dr. Al-Kheetan previously served as the Head of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Mutah University from September, 2020 till September, 2021. Beside his role as an Assistant Professor at Mutah University, he is an Associate Editor at the Journal of Transport, published by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), UK (https://www.icevirtuallibrary.com/toc/jtran/current). He is also an Editorial Board Member at the International Journal of Pavement Research and Technology (https://www.springer.com/journal/42947). He is a regular reviewer for the following international journals: International Journal of Pavement Engineering (Taylor & Francis), International Journal of Pavement Research and Technology (Springer), Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering (ASCE), Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers – Transport (ICE), Journal of Building Engineering (Elsevier), Construction and Building Materials (Elsevier), Results in Engineering (Elsevier), Royal Society Open Science (The Royal Society), KSCE Journal of Civil Engineering (Springer), JOM The Journal of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (Springer), Structural Concrete (Wiley), Transportation Research Record (SAGE), ACS Applied Materials &Interfaces, Building Research and Information (Taylor & Francis), Cogent Engineering (Taylor & Francis), Transactions of Nonferrous Metals Society of China (Elsevier), Iranian Journal of Science and Technology- Transactions of Civil Engineering (Springer), Advances in Materials Science and Engineering (Hindawi), Computers and Concrete (Techno-Press), Materials (MDPI), Buildings (MDPI), Applied Sciences (MDPI), Infrastructures (MDPI), Sustainability (MDPI), Symmetry (MDPI).

Prior to the employment at Mutah University, Dr. Al-Kheetan worked as Teaching and Research Assistant at Brunel University London from March 2016 till May 2019. He worked under the supervision of Prof. Mujib Rahman and Prof. Denis Chamberlain on several projects; Performance enhancement of bitumen and asphalt mixtures, Concrete pavement protection, surface protection of concrete structures, and Moisture blocking in the preservation of Heritage structures.

He worked as a Project Engineer at Habash-Deir Contracting Company from 2011 till 2014 in two of the largest projects in Amman: Abdali Mall Project and Queen Alia International Airport Project (http://www.habashdeir.com/).

He is the author/co-author of over 25 peer-reviewed international journal and conference articles. His research interests include Innovation in composites science and technology, Additive manufacturing technology in construction, Concrete pavement protection, and Mechanical properties of cold mix asphalt mixtures.
