Between 2006 and 2013, Al-Talhi worked as director of KAU’s computer skills unit. He also chaired the university’s IT department for nearly three years beginning in 2007.
The newly appointed rector worked as a functional data analyst between 1998 and 1999 at CACI-Federal, Inc. in New Orleans, where he later served as a computer system analyst for two years beginning in 1999.
