AA studied Chemistry at the University of Vienna (Austria) and earned a Ph.D. in 2007. He developed synthetic antibodies as biomimetic coatings for chemical sensors using bulk and surface molecular imprinting techniques. Later, he worked as a Collaborator (Postdoc) at the University of Bari (Italy) and developed nanostructured metal oxide-based high-temperature electronic gas sensors. In 2012, he joined King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals campus in Hafr Al Batin (Saudi Arabia), which was later transformed into University of Hafr Al Batin. He is currently a Professor of General and Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Hafr Al Batin (Saudi Arabia). His research interests include the development of imprinted and functional materials for chemical and biosensors, biomedical diagnostics, and environment- and energy-related applications.
