I joined the University of Surrey on December 2019 as a postdoctoral researcher in Civil and Environmental Engineering. My research is on the degradation and environmental fate of plastic litter. The project will characterize the formation and behavior of micro- and nano-plastics under controlled laboratory conditions. Resultant data will be used to predict the environmental fate and impacts of a variety of polymers and propose workable solutions to the problems associated with plastic litter.
I achieved my bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering in 2009 which I worked on degradation oil contaminants from seawater by Photocatalyst followed by master’s degree in chemical engineering in 2012 working on waste water treatment by using membrane and adsorption methods. Then, I obtained my PhD degree in chemical engineering. In my PhD thesis, I worked on developing partial degradable plastic for packaging industry to decrease pollution that arose from non-biodegradable polymers like polyethylene.
During my studies, I became very interested in environmental challenge and material science:
My research interest includes:
- Plastic Pollution
- Polymer science
- Waste water treatment
- Rheology for characterization of polymeric materials
