Faisal Abdulla AlMarzooqi is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Khalifa University. He received his PhD degree in Interdisciplinary Engineering from the joint program at Masdar Institute and at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2015 for his research on the Interplay of Membrane Fabrication and Nanotechnology in Water Desalination. He obtained his Master's degree in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London in 2009 for his research on the use of ionic liquids in the determination of surface energies, which led him to receive the Lonza award in the same year. He is the deputy director of the Center of Membrane and Advanced Water Technology (CMAT) at Khalifa University and an Editorial Board Member in the Desalination journal by Elsevier. Faisal’s research focuses on membranes and devices fabrication for solar water treatment and energy applications including, desalination, wastewater treatment, valuable metals recovery, hydrogen and batteries.
