I decided to join KAUST because of its excellent environment that allows me to steer my focus to many research fields I found interesting. Here I also have the opportunity to take the lead in the mentoring and guidance of many students at various levels. This has helped me to achieve an excellent record in terms of publications during my stay at KAUST.
