Dr. Jamal Hassan is an associate professor of Physics in Physics Department at Khalifa University of Science and Technology. He obtained his PhD degree Physics (NMR) from University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in 2007. Dr. Hassan’s research interest is studying water dynamics and behavior in nano-confinements. He uses different NMR techniques to study water behavior inside hydrophilic (silica-based) and hydrophobic (carbon-based/ carbon nano-tubes) materials.
PhD., Optical Sciences, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, 2007
Study of water-surface interaction using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, NMR. More specifically investigation of nano confinement (hydrophobic and hydrophilic) effects on the guest molecules’ dynamics and physical properties. For this purpose we typically use systems of silica materials (such as MCM-41 and SBA-41) and carbon nanotube to mimic hydrophilic and hydrophobic environments for water molecules. In addition, my research also includes surface characterization and investigating hydrogen gas storage inside mesoporous silica materials, using NMR.
