Dr. Ali Fakih, ASU Graduate and Principle of SEG LLC.

In June 2017, Dr. Ali Fakih, Principle of Sustainability Engineering (SEG) Group LLC, completed his PhD work in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at ASU. His dissertation focused on “Saline Waste Use for Subgrade Soil Improvement” and faculty committee consisted of Drs. Kamil Kaloush, Claudia Zapata and Peter Fox. During Ali’s challenging academic schedule at ASU, he ran a successful business. SEG remarkably grew over the years because of Ali’s leadership, excellent mentoring of the young engineers he hired, and dedication to excellence. Over the years, Ali presented at several local conferences and talked about his work at SEG and ASU. His message has been consistent: he wants to improve our quality of life and infrastructure with a sustainable approach. He is truly passionate about his message and mission. Earlier this month, Ali has been recognized as one of the “40 Under 40” Awardees by thePhoenix Business Journal.  The honorees are recognized for their accomplishments that greatly impact the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.


Dr. Kamil Kaloush stated: “I do not know of anyone who accomplished so much at this young age; he has served the State and local community at many levels, he is truly an inspiration and exemplar for the young graduates”


Congratulations Dr. Ali Fakih for these remarkable achievements!
