Khalid Salah *

Dr. Khalid Salah is assistant professor of applied statistics at the Faculty of Science. He joined the faculty
in 2002. He worked for more than ten years as a teacher of mathematics and computer science at YMCA
schools. Dr. Khalid headed the university’s Statistical and study unit from 2010 to 2016. He worked on
many statistical issues, most notably university statistics, organizing the statistical process between the
university and the Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education and the Palestinian Central Bureau of
Statistics. Dr. Khalid is currently working on the development of teaching statistics and biostatistics at the
university to keep pace with the scientific and technological progress in the world. He also contributed to
the development of many courses of statistics and biostatistics at the bachelor and master level, which he
teaches some of these courses.

Dr. Khalid is currently working in cooperation with the Department of Mathematics and the Deanship of
the Faculty of Science, and with a direct assignment from the university president, to establish the
“Jerusalem Center for Statistics”, which in turn will contribute and assist in most of the statistical work of
the university, staff, as well as students, especially graduate students.

It is worth mentioning that Dr. Khalid has been chosen as a referee for many international scientific
journal because of his research achievements in the fields of Applied Statistics, Biostatistics, and Applied

Mathematics including:

This was in addition to participating in many scientific conferences inside and outside the country.

The most recent was the scientific conference on mathematics and applied statistics, which was held at Birzeit
University, Ramallah, From 27-30 August 2018.

Dr. Khalid holds a PhD in applied statistics, which he received in 2007 from Putra University in
Malaysia, an MA in Applied Mathematics (2002) from Al Quds University, and a Bachelor’s Degree
(1989) from College of Science and Technology / Abu Dies.
