Research Focus:

Synthesize new porous material and use new material for relevant applications 

Tell us something about your current research: 

I synthesize new porous materials that can use as proton conducting membranes.

What got you interested in chemistry? How does chemistry inspire you?

Originally, I did not like chemistry, but my parents asked me to study it. Chemistry was only interesting to me as I started my own in-depth research; the feeling of exploration was what made me happy.

Chemistry inspires me from the happy feeling I get from exploring new materials and captivation of potential applications that happen after the discovery of new materials.

What you like best about working at MANAR? What has been your proudest moment at MANAR? 

MANAR provides good environment for young researchers to be trained and grow up. Young researcher will be happy at MANAR with your own discoveries.

What are your future goals (scientific/career/short-term/long-term)? 

Create new concepts/ finish PhD/ become a top scientist
