Congratulations to Prof. Himanshu Mishra for being promoted to the rank of Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering.
Himanshu joined KAUST in 2014 as an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering. During this time, he managed to bring together a great team of engineers, chemists, and physicists and established collaborations with professors and laboratories inside KAUST and from other institutions. His research group (iLab) investigates chemistries and forces at interfaces of water with hydrophobic materials, including air, hydrocarbons, or perfluorocarbons. Himanshu’s translational research has produced technologies for sustainably boosting food production in hot and arid areas and achieving liquid-repellent surfaces/membranes without using (liquid-repellent) coatings. He has been inspiring and supporting students and researchers in his lab as well as in the classroom while giving lectures to graduate students on Aquatic Chemistry.
We wish Himanshu all the best in his future endeavors!
