Talk Title
Electrospun Nanofibers: Advanced Material for Advanced Energy Applications

Talk Abstract

Electrospinning (electrostatic fiber spinning) is a modern, efficient method and unique technique which uses electric field to produce polymeric as well as metal oxide nanofibers which their diameter can reduce to nanometers. These fibers have a wide applications in industry such as filtration, composite materials, medical, membrane, etc. Research on electrospun nanofibers is a very active field in material science owing to their novel applications in diverse domains. The main focus of this presentation is to provide an insight into Electrospinning technique by understanding the working principle, influencing parameters and applications of nanofibers in applied energy. Several hundreds of papers are published on the preparation, modification and applications of nanofibers produced by electrospinning technique in the areas like sensor development, decontamination, energy storage, biomedical and catalysis etc. Details on the industrial scale development of electrospinning technique, current scenario and future developments are also covered in this presentations. 

Short Biography

Prof. Khalil is currently working as a professor and head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Sharjah. After graduating from Faculty of Engineering, Minia University, at Egypt, in 1990, he worked for three years in Sugar and Integrated Industries Company (SIIC) as a planning and follows up engineer. In July, 1995, he moved from SIIC to work as a demonstrator in Faculty of Energy Engineering, Aswan University, Egypt. In 1996 he completed his Master Degree. In 1998 he was accepted into the Trans-Century Training Program for Talents by the Ministry of Education of China and the Ministry of Higher Education of Egypt as a scholarship student to complete his Ph. D degree. He earned PhD in 2002. He got an opportunity for Postdoc fellowship in Chonbuk National University (CBNU), South Korea from 2004-2005. He was later selected through the Long-Term Foreign Faculty Program for another 2 years in the same University. In 2008, he has been appointed as Associate Professor in Faculty of Engineering, King Saud University. He has published more than 100 ISI papers of international standard with high impact factor in addition to 3 patent, two book chapters and two translated books. He has been promoted to the rank of full professor in both Saudi Arabia and Egypt in 2011.
