Originally from Palestine, I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. I received my B.Eng from Imperial College in London, UK and my M.Sc from KAUST in Saudi Arabia where my majors for both degrees was Materials Science and Engineering. Following 4 years of industrial experience with SABIC, I decided to move to the University of Alberta and pursue my graduate studies, working for Dr. Jillian Buriak. I was attracted to the University because of its unique research infrastructure and interdisciplinary research. My research will focus on bottom-up self-assembly of nanomaterials for memory and energy storage applications. Outside of work, I mainly enjoy spending my time with my wife and children, play football (or should I say soccer?), and occasionally learning some song covers on guitar.
I grew up in China and came to Canada to do my undergraduate and graduate studies. I am a Ph.D. student in Buriak Group and my research focuses on rechargeable batteries. I like outdoor sports, traveling, reading, and jokes.
