Dr. Ayman Ismail Rabi was born in 1964 in the village of Deir Ghassaneh. He earned his B.Sc. in geological engineering from Turkey in 1987, and his M.Sc. in water resource systems engineering from the UK in 1993. Finally he got his Ph.D. from Washington International University in 1999.

He started his professional career in 1987 with the Palestinian Agricultural Relief Committees (PARC), conducting a field survey on natural springs in the West Bank. He continued working with PARC as a volunteer for one year and a half, during which time he founded the Palestinian Hydrology Group (PHG). The Group is currently the largest professional non-governmental body working on water and environmental issues in Palestine, of which Dr. Rabi is the Executive Director.

The idea behind founding PHG emerged from the desperate need for a specialized body that can document and address water and environmental issues in a professional way. This motivated Dr. Rabi to focus more on the broader water and environmental issues in Palestine and how they are related to the overall hydro-political context in the Jordan River and the Mediterranean basin.
