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.
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:
Spintronics: Design and synthesis of MXenes for spintronic applications
