Dr. Maryam Khaleel joined the Khalifa University (Sas Al Nakhl Campus) in May 2016 as an Assistant Professor. She received her Bachelors in Chemical Engineering from the Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi (honors with distinction, 2011) and her PhD from the department of Chemical Engineering & Materials Science at the University of Minnesota, U.S.A. (2015). Dr. Khaleel worked on the synthesis and characterization of hierarchical zeolites, in particular Faujasite nanostructures, for applications in catalysis and separation. Her work focused on developing a better understanding of the nucleation and growth of hierarchical morphologies of Faujasite formed by FAU/EMT intergrowth using transmission electron microscopy imaging (room temperature and cryogenic) and diffraction. Her current research interests are the synthesis and characterization of porous materials, such as zeolites and Metal Organic Frameworks, for applications in catalysis and separation with emphasis given to understanding the effect of structure on performance to enable tuning the properties of materials for specific applications.
