Research Interests

​My research interest ranges from material science to microflow chemistry through sustainable engineering. As a freshly joined member of the AMPM Center at KAUST I am aiming to conduct unique and high impact research which will contribute to the growth of the world. As part of the Sustainable Separation Engineering Research Group the green and renewability aspects are always considered.
