Research Interests

Material scientists specialised in material simulation and physical characterisation.
During my Ph.D. studies, I gained experience in the molecular design, synthesis,
characterisation, and computational simulation of MOFs that can be deployed for
various applications such as gas/vapor separation, gas storage, etc. Also, I got
involved in an S. Aramco-funded project on CO2 capture from flue gas.
