Anas is currently a Professor of Environmental Engineering at The University of Western Australia where he leads a very successful research group (Aquatic Ecology and Ecosystem Studies) focused on the study of a range of topics in water resources (water and wastewater), ecological engineering and environmental engineering, with an emphasis on the development of innovative technologies.

Anas has more than twenty years of research and teaching experience in the water area and has led numerous large scale multidisciplinary projects nationally and internationally. He is an expert advisor to a number of organisations and agencies in Australia and internationally. He has also been an editor for the journal Hydrology and Earth System Sciences since 2005.

Anas is Executive Director of the $120M Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC) established in 2012 (2012-2021). His role includes both operation and scientific leadership in this large multidisciplinary research centre. The role also includes the coordination of the CRCWSC activities within UWA, and the management of relationships with Western Australian CRC industry partners.
