Sherif A. Younis is an associate professor at the Egyptian Petroleum Research Institute (EPRI) from 2019 to date. He joined EPRI as an assistant researcher in 2007. He received the M.Sc. in Chemistry and Biochemistry from Mansura University (Egypt) in 2010, then the Ph.D. in Applied Chemistry from Ain Shams University (Egypt) in 2013. As a postdoctoral (2016 -2017), he joined Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC)-CNRS, Université de Toulouse, France, under the supervision of Prof. Philippe SERP, focusing on nanoscience and photocatalysis applications in water treatment and H2 production/storage. In late 2017, he was assigned as a lecturer in the petrochemical program at the Faculty of Science, Mansoura University, Egypt. Since 2018, he has acted as an assistant professor in the research group of Distinguished Prof. Ki-Hyun Kim, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Hanyang University, Republic of Korea (South Korea), emphasizing Environmental Nanotechnology and Air Pollution Control Technologies. The research interests and activities of Dr. Younis are focused on materials science, environmental nano-(bio)-technologies, pollution control, sustainable environmental management, colorimetric/electro-sensing of water pollutants, photo-electro-catalysis, adsorption, advanced oxidation processes, and renewable/biofuel production. His work also involves mathematical modeling for equilibrium, kinetics, thermodynamics studies, and experimental data interpretation using various statistical analyses and models. The comprehensive research contribution to these areas led to publishing around 65 articles (experimental and review papers) in peer-reviewed SCI-Journals, two research patents, two book chapters, and winning a silver medal award at the 2nd Beirut International Innovation Exhibition - BIIS 2021. Moreover, he has participated as membership/ co-principal investigator in 8 research projects, editorial board member (EBM) in 4 scientific journals, supervisor of 11 graduate students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.), invited speaker in more than 25 scientific workshops and conferences, reviewer for more than 20 peer-reviewed SCI-journals, and technical committee member in many international conferences held in Spain, China, and Canada.
