Interfacial Lab (iLab) is a curiosity-driven interdisciplinary research group composed of chemists, physicists, engineers and theorists. We investigate intermolecular forces and rates of chemical reactions at ever fluctuating molecular interfaces of water with solids, gases and immiscible liquids. To that end, we combine tools and techniques from physics, chemistry and engineering, such as the Surface Forces Apparatus, Contact Angle Cells, Atomic Force Microscopy, Optical Coherence Tomography, Zeta-Potential Cells, High Speed Imaging and Electrochemical Cells. In addition, we regularly use KAUST cleanrooms, machine shops and supercomputers. ​


Our doors are always open for brilliant, curiosity-driven graduate students and interns who thrive in a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural atmosphere. KAUST offers exceptional academic environment and infrastructure for scientific research through its outstanding faculty members, researchers, Core Laboratorieand collaborations with excellent research institutions world wide​​​
