Assistant Professor,

Majed A. Alrefae is an Assistant Professor at Yanbu Industrial College, Royal Commission Yanbu Colleges and Institutes. He received his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2018, MS from KAUST in 2013, and BS from KFUPM in 2008. He worked as a project engineer at SABIC from 2008 to 2010. At Purdue University, Majed optimized and characterized a custom-built scalable roll-to-roll plasma CVD system to deposit carbon nanostructures on various flexible substrates, including Cu foil and carbon fiber. Majed won the KAUST Seed Fund in 2012 and was the most improved Entrepreneurial Lead in the I-Corps Program in 2017 for commercializing carbon nanostructures. His research focus is on developing plasma processes to produce carbon nanostructures for energy and water desalination applications.
