"Himanshu Mishra"

Himanshu Mishra is an Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at KAUST. He develops and applies experimental methods to interrogate physical and chemical phenomena at interfaces of water such as surface forces, electrification, wetting, and catalysis. Fundamental insights are then translated into sustainable technologies such as for achieving water–food–climate security in in arid lands via soil amendment and carbon sequestration and beyond. He has authored ~40 peer-reviewed articles in top journals, including Nature Communications, Science Advances, PNAS, JCIS, and flagship journals of the American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is the co-founder of Terraxy Corp.
