Haya Nassrullah joined the NYUAD Water Research Center (WRC) as a graduate research assistant in September 2020. She is currently working on the development of electrically conductive membranes for enhanced water treatment. She received her MSc. in chemical engineering from Khalifa University and BSc. in chemical engineering and chemistry from the American University of Sharjah. During her Master's studies, Haya gained experience in fabricating and characterizing composite electrospun membranes that can be used for oily wastewater treatment via membrane distillation. Following her graduation, Haya joined NYUAD WRC as a research engineer, during which she worked on producing crystalline zeolite nanoparticles using ball milling.


Haya is currently working on the development and testing of electrically conductive nanofiltration membranes for desalination. Her objectives include controlling ion selectivity and enhancing fouling mitigation.
