After completing his PhD at Oregon State University in Chemical Engineering, Prof. Al-Marzouqi worked as a Corrosion Engineer in ADNOC Onshore previously known as Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations (ADCO). He, then, joined the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at the UAE University as an Assistant Professor, promoted to Associate Professor and Professor. Prof. Al-Marzouqi served as a Chairman of Chemical & Petroleum Engineering Department, an Assistant Dean for Research, Director of the University’s Emirates Center for Energy and Environment Research, and currently serving as a Vice Dean, College of Engineering.

Prof. Al-Marzouqi published 70 refereed International Journal papers, two book chapters and 55 conference presentations in addition to several invited technical talks. His journal papers are cited 1823 (Google Scholar) and 1327 (Scopus: ID: 10041707400) times with H-index of 26 (Google Scholar) and 22 (Scopus). 68 of Prof. Al-Marzouqi’s 70 journal publications were resulted from his work at UAE University. Prof. Al-Marzouqi have supervised several MSc and PhD students. He and another colleague from UAE University developed two commercial gas analyzers for online measurement of carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide concentrations in gas streams which resulted in two Japanese patents and a US patent.

Prof. Al-Marzouqi reviewed several manuscripts for publications in several International Journals and proposals for possible funding including Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). He was a member of review committee for Zayed Future Energy Prize. Prof. Al-Marzouqi chaired several sessions of conferences at the regional and local levels. He supervised students on their graduation projects and participated in the Environmental Design Contest hosted by Waste-management Education and Research Consortium (WERC) in New Mexico, USA for three consecutive years and competed with about 50 teams from USA and other international teams. Prof. Al-Marzouqi initiated and chaired “Environmental Design Competition”, hosted at UAE University, for four consecutive times. The aim was for the students to tackle real environmental challenges while addressing issues including technical, legal, health, community relations and economics. Prof. Al-Marzouqi was a member of the Foundation’s Program Council for the Environment, Emirates Foundation and UAE University representative in Environmental Agency, Fujarah Renewable Energy Program, Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) for Exhibition on Water, Energy and Environment, Technology Symposium on Water Treatment, and in The 22nd Joint GCC-Japan Environment Symposium (Saudi Arabia) and The Joint Kingdom of Bahrain-Japan Symposium (Bahrain).

Prof. Al-Marzouqi have received several awards including First 43 UAE Pioneers, Awarded by Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, 2014 and Prime Minister’s medal for innovative employee, 2019, Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Most research interests for a scientist

Prof. Al-Marzouqi is specialized in the areas of membrane gas separation and gas processing. He has received external research funding for several projects including: “Removal of acid gases from natural gas using membrane contactors: Applications to ADGAS Field Conditions”. Prof. Al-Marzouqi established an active “Membrane Research Group” which he is currently leading.
