Neveen AlQasas has been a Water Research Center (WRC) research associate since September 2021. She holds a PhD degree from the University of Ottawa in the area of membrane characterizations. AlQasas obtained her Bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) and her Master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Western Ontario. Before her PhD, she was a senior laboratory engineer at Khalifa University.

Before AlQasas joined the Water Research Center, she was a visiting faculty for three years at UAEU in the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering department. She has a long teaching and research experience in chemical engineering major.

AlQasas's research interest spans the area of membrane characterizations, mathematical and numerical modeling, diffusion mechanisms, separation processes that employ membrane technology, and further developments for better design and recovery. AlQasas taught core chemical engineering courses, such as mass transfer, process control, process modeling and simulation, and reactor design. She has supervised undergraduate and graduate students in their graduation and thesis projects in the various institutes she worked in.

AlQasas was awarded the international student scholarship at the University of Western Ontario and the admission scholarship at the University of Ottawa.


Currently AlQasas is working in the group of Daniel Johnson in the area of synthesizing antifouling membranes for water and waste water treatment technology.
