He was successful in brining nearly $3,000,000 worth of research funding in his first 7 years after finishing his PhD, leading many grants as a PI or Co-PI with collaborators from Economics, Anthropology, Archaeology, Sociology, Environmental Studies, Geography, Computer Science, and other fields. He helped to develop a variety of tools and computational methods that address the fields he has worked with, including developing free and open source tools used widely by researchers and the public. His honors and accolades include a “Best Paper” award at a 2005 conference, a “Pacesetter” research award in 2006 for computational tools developed, and an invited visiting appointment at an academic institution. In addition, Dr. Altaweel has visiting appointment at the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory. As an archaeologist, he has worked in five different countries in the Near East with his current work focused on Iraqi Kurdistan. He currently is on the editorial board of Social Science Computer Review and Iraq.
Dr. Altaweel takes an interdisciplinary perspective in his teaching philosophy and integrates a variety of methods and fields in his courses. He has taught courses on Near Eastern history and archaeology, GIS, remote sensing methods, computational modelling, social-ecological theory, and on land use and environmental change.

Research Projects and Fieldwork
- 2011: Archaeological project conducted in Kurdistan, Iraq (near Sulaymaniyah). Work focuses on studying anthropogenic landscape change in the past using soil analysis, remote sensing, and archaeological survey. Work conducted with the University of Heidelberg.
- 2008-2010: Co-PI on archaeological documentation projected sponsored by the United States State Department with data collected focusing on ancient Mesopotamian sites in southern and northern Iraq. Work included training Iraqis on the use of archaeological survey methods and GPS. Project was conducted near Istanbul, Turkey and Amman, Jordan.
- 2006-2008: Co-PI on archaeological documentation projected sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities with data collected focusing on ancient Mesopotamian sites in southern and northern Iraq. Work included training Iraqis on the use of archaeological survey methods and GPS on archaeological sites in Jordan. Project work was conducted in Homs, Syria and Amman, Jordan.
- 2004-5: PI on archaeological data collection project for sites in northern Mesopotamia with data focused on surveys and excavations conducted in the 1980s and 1990s. Project included training Iraqis on the useof GPS and other survey techniques on sites in Jordan. Project conducted in and near Amman, Jordan.
- 2003: Archaeological site damage assessment survey in Iraq sponsored by National Geographic Society (see October 2003 issue of National Geographic). Conducted near Baghdad, Mosul, and Samarra, Iraq.
