Work ExperienceBefore joining FAFS, Dr. Farajalla was a senior Environmental Engineer at Dar AI-Handasah Consultants (Shair & Partners). There he worked on a variety of drainage, storm water, sewerage and water supply studies in Lebanon, Turkey, Angola, Nigeria, Morocco and Saudi Arabia. From these, he has gained wide and valuable experience in feasibility and comparative cost studies, as well as in the preliminary and final design of such schemes. Dr. Farjalla also worked for Stone Environmental Inc. (Montpelier, VT, USA) where he was responsible for the environmental appraisal and design of various watershed management programs, water quality assessment and remediation efforts, fate and transport of pollutants in surface and ground water, and flood control efforts. A significant component of Dr. Farajalla's professional experience in the USA focused on the development of watershed management approaches pollution problems especially non-point source pollution. He led a team that studied the impact of landuse changes on non-point source phosphorous loadings into Lake Champlain and assessed the impact of future development on lake water quality. is doctoral research focused on issues of scale in stormwater runoff simulation within watersheds using GIS technology. He was a key participant in the development of a GIS integrated stormwater runoff model using the latest approaches in distributed hydrological modeling. Key research interests are in watershed management, fate and transport of contaminants, best management practices, and scale issues in hydrology.
