Senior Lecturer, Department of Chemistry

Mohamed earned his Ph.D  in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of St. Andrews, UK in 2011. He then held a postdoctoral researcher position at the King Abdullah University of Science & Technology, KSA. In 2014 he joined the Institute of Chemistry, Ceylon as a Senior Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry. He held a Researcher position in the Department of Physical and Macromolecular Chemistry at the Charles University in Prague prior to joining Khalifa University as a Senior Lecturer in 2020. His research interests mainly aim to design and synthesise functional solid state materials with a special focus on Metal Organic Frameworks and MXenes.

Research Interests

His research aims at developing solid state functional materials such as Metal Organic Frameworks and MXenes that address some of our most challenging societal and technological needs, such as:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions: Judiciously design functional and cost effective MOFs that can sequester large amounts of CO2.
  • Industrial Chemistry: Construction of MOFs that can be used for separation of gases and vapors.

Spintronics: Design and synthesis of MXenes for spintronic applications
