Dr. Ahmed Abdel-Wahab is a professor of chemical engineering at Texas A&M University at Qatar and a professor of civil engineering at Texas A&M University. He has more than 25 years of experience in environmental engineering teaching, research, and consulting. His research primarily focuses on chemical, (photo)electrochemical, and physical processes associated with water and energy conversion systems.
Dr. Abdel-Wahab’s work includes electrocatalytic water splitting, photochemical oxidation and reduction processes for destruction of a wide range of water and wastewater contaminants, electrocoagulation, engineered osmosis for green energy production, and innovative extensions of lime softening for removal of a wide range of contaminants from recirculating cooling water and brine concentrate.
Dr. Abdel-Wahab has strong track record in successfully delivering research and development projects funded by QNRF, as well as by many government and industry stakeholders. His research has led to publication of more than 110 peer-reviewed articles in leading research journals, 9 book chapters, and more than 80 refereed conference publications/presentations.
Dr. Abdel-Wahab is an editorial board member of the Journal of Water Process Engineering (Elsevier) and Emergent Materials Journal (Springer). He is the co-founder of the Qatar Sustainable Water and Energy Utilization Initiative. He has served on several technical committees for a number of governmental and non-governmental agencies in Qatar.
Dr. Abdel-Wahab received his master’s degree in civil engineering from Al Minia University, Egypt, in 1995, and his Ph.D. in civil engineering from Texas A&M University, USA, in 2003.
