As a Research Scientist, he is leading the organic analysis section in the Center for Environment and Water (CEW). Dr. Nazal got his Ph.D. in Chemistry specializing in Analytical and Environmental Chemistry in 2016 from KFUPM. He received his MS and BS degrees in Chemistry from The University of Jordan in 2003 and 2006 respectively. Dr. Nazal has more than 15 years’ experience in analytical related research and teaching at research laboratories, industries and universities. Dr. Nazal has published more than 30 research papers in refereed ISI journals and application patents and sub patents registered in the US patent office. Dr. Nazal’s research interests are focused on the development of efficient and selective materials and methods for the removal of pollutants (organic sulfur compounds, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, phenolic compounds, pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, heavy metals, etc.) from different matrices for water treatment and fuel desulfurization. In addition, employing these materials for extraction and enrichment of analytes of interest in environmental samples prior to their instrumental analysis.
