2014 Master of Science: Molecular Science and Nanotechnology Louisiana Tech University Ruston , LA Honors Masters Student with 3.82 GPA Bachelor of Science: General Chemistry Om Al-Qura University Makkah, Saudi Arabia Award: Outstanding Bachelor Student, 2009 Research Assistant and Student Louisiana Tech University Ruston, LA Masters Project: Electrical Polarization of Continuous Monitoring Gas Sensors Researched air quality and gas sensing methods and applications to determine most effective emission control method Assessed the use of a catalytic converter in a three-way catalyst system to monitor composition of exhaust gases and adjust air to fuel ratio to optimum value. Analyzed recent studies on gas sensor technology for automotive applications to obtain relevant information. Lab Research: Geometrically Optimize Oxygen and YSZ using Dmol3 in Material Studio Determined potential applications of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) and developed knowledge of its molecular structure and composition in the manufacture of gas sensors. Utilized Materials Studio software to accurately assess molecular structure with quantum mechanical, semi-empirical, and classical simulation. Applied molecular mechanics (DMol3), molecular calculation, and MD calculation techniques. Lab Research: An Investigation of Electrical Polarization on Yttria-Stabilized Zirconia Microstructure Performed X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis on Bosch Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen (HEGO) sensors to assess the effect of voltage polarization on sensor reliability and stability. Observed diffraction patterns in electrically treated versus untreated samples. Analyzed and discussed results obtained from operating voltage of HEGO sensors between 1-3V.
