Dr. Shadi W. Hasan holds BSc, MASc, and PhD in Chemical, Mechanical and Environmental Engineering, respectively. Dr. Hasan’s field of expertise includes water purification, wastewater treatment and reuse, water desalination, and nanotechnology. Dr. Hasan has worked on several projects in water desalination using forward osmosis, reverse osmosis, and membrane distillation technologies in Abu Dhabi; particularly on process design and scale up, and modeling and simulation. He was also the principal investigator, in collaboration with MIT, on the design of hybrid wastewater treatment system. Dr. Hasan has also established research collaboration with well-known international universities and institutes such as MIT, Harvard and Yale (USA), Manchester, Oxford, Brunel London, and Bradford (UK), Concordia (Canada), UTS (Australia), Korea (Korea) and Salerno (Italy), among others. Throughout his academic career, Dr. Hasan has been recognized as an excellent designer (first to design the novel submerged membrane electro-bioreactor for municipal wastewater treatment at a pilot scale – Montreal, Canada) and has obtained a number of prestigious awards including the FQRNT. Dr. Hasan has authored and co-authored over 85 articles in peer reviewed journals and conference proceedings; and generated significant research interest abroad in the USA and overseas. Dr. Hasan’s research has significant impacts and led to several funding opportunities both internally and externally. Dr. Hasan is an active reviewer for more than 30 scientific journals, and has supervised more than 25 MSc and PhD students, and research fellows. The “Water Purification Lab” established by Dr. Hasan at KU is well-equipped and has several analytical instruments for water quality analysis, and membrane fouling monitoring and characterization.
