Niveen M. Khashab

Associate Professor, Physical Science and Engineering, KAUST


​Niveen M. Khashab is an Associate Professor at the Physical Sciences and Engineering Division at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). During her doctoral studies at the University of Florida, Prof. Khashab trained in organic chemistry in the laboratory of Prof. Alan R. Katritzky. During her post-doctoral studies at the University of California, Los Angeles and then at Northwestern University, Prof. Khashab continued her training in Sir Fraser Stoddart's laboratory, where she worked on designing and making mechanized silica nanoparticles and molecular switches. Prof. Khashab has received the Crow award for organic innovation in 2006 and AlMarai award for excellence in nanotechnology in the Middle East region in 2013. She is also the 2017 recipient of the L'Oreal-Unesco international women in science award. Her current efforts focus on the design, synthesis, and applications of organic-inorganic hybrid materials that are porous and dynamically controlled by stimuli (pH, light, magnet, enzymes….). Her lab aims to develop systems that can be triggered on demand using molecular self-assembly and supramolecular tools.
