Among many other contributions, he also served as the Chair of the Gender and Diversity in Engineering Committee. 

His passion and dedication to teaching resulted in several teaching excellence awards that the students unanimously nominated. He holds memberships in several professional organizations: the American Solar Energy Society (ASES), Solar Alberta, and Institution for Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE). Anis has also been named on Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering. Anis received his Ph.D. from the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST).
