Dr. Himanshu H Mishra
Himanshu Mishra is an Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering and a principal investigator at the Water Desalination and Reuse Center at KAUST. His Group investigates physical and chemical phenomena at interfaces of water with air, oils, and perfluorinated coatings such as wetting, surface forces, electrification, and proton-catalyzed reactions. Technologies developed in his Group range from sustainable mulches for growing more food/biomass with less water in arid regions, to perfluorocarbon-free gas-entrapping microtextured surfaces (GEMS) for drag reduction. He has published 40 peer-reviewed articles in top journals, including Nature Communications, Science Advances, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and journals of the American Chemical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. He holds nine granted/pending patents.
