Research Interest
Our lab is interested in the development of advanced functional nanomaterials. We focus our efforts in the synthesis and characterization of unique nanomaterials such as metal and metal oxides nanoparticles, bimetallic nanoparticles, hybrid nanoparticles, and semiconductor quantum dots with specific potential applications in catalysis, alternative energy, biomedical, electronics and sensing devices, oil and gas industry, and energy 
Short Biography
Dr. Khalil earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from New Mexico Tech, USA working under Dr. Ning Liu at Petroleum Recovery Research Center (PRRC) and Professor Michael D. Heagy in 2015. He completed his B.Sc. in chemistry at Bogor Agricultural University in 2007 and obtained M.Eng.Sc. in chemical engineering from University of Malaya in 2011. He was the HIR Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Center for Energy Science, University of Malaya. Before joining UI as inorganic chemistry lecturer, he briefly worked as Research Fellow at Centre for Research in Nanotechnology and Catalysis (NANOCAT), University of Malaya. He was the recipient of 2015 NMT Founders Award and Ambassador Award for Excellence from the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Washington DC.
