Khalid Almarri, PhD, is an Assistant Professor
of Project Management in the Engineering and
IT Department of the British University in Dubai,
United Arab Emirates. He is acclaimed for setting
a high standard of accomplishment by holding the
first PhD award in project management in the Gulf
region. Dr. Almarri has an undergraduate degree in
civil engineering from the University of Arizona and
a master’s degree in engineering management from
the Catholic University of America. After earning
his degrees, he commenced his engineering career
in 1996 in the Dubai Municipality and has been in
government services in the Sewerage & Irrigation
Department and the Roads Department as head of
the Roads Construction Section.
Through a doctoral program, Dr. Almarri produced
the first framework for developing projects through
public–private partnerships (PPP) in the United Arab
Emirates. This framework is the first to lay the
foundations for a standardized PPP practice in the
UAE for practitioners; it highlights the most important
factors for the success of PPP projects, such as value
for money, risk sharing and allocation, renegotiation,
and the roles of public and private parties.
Dr. Almarri is also credited for developing a
framework for establishing a nuclear research
reactor project in the UAE through the utilization of
public–private partnerships. This was one of the first
frameworks for PPPs in research reactor projects
in the world and followed strict safeguards and
required full awareness of nuclear safety, security,
and control of nuclear materials handling. He can be

Halim Boussabaine, PhD, has more than 25 years
of experience in risk modeling and management. He
holds a PhD and MSc from Manchester University in
the United Kingdom. His consistent research interest
has been to pull together and integrate various modern
scientific theories and state-of-the-art modeling
techniques in order to gain a better understanding
of the complexity of risk. Recently, his research
portfolio has been expanded to encompass the impact
of emerging risks on a variety of complex human
decisions that affect natural systems, social systems,
and human-made networks. He has published four
books and more than 100 research articles and has
supervised more than 20 doctoral research projects. He
has acted as external PhD examiner for several UK and
European universities and serves as a peer reviewer
for many leading international journals. He assesses
research proposals and final reports for UK and
European Union research councils and has delivered
training courses in the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia,
and MENA regions; he is also an honorary visitor to
Liverpool and Manchester Universities in the United
Kingdom. His current research agenda focuses on
identifying, quantifying, and modeling risk dynamics
that create failure/opportunity in enterprises and
projects. He can be contacted at email@example.com
