Biography

Dr. Fahed M. Takrori got his B.Sc. in Chemistry from University of Jordan and M.Sc. and Ph.D. in the field of polymer chemistry from Middle East Technical University/Turkey. He jointed chemistry department at Hebron University as Assist. Prof. in 1992 and was promoted as Assoc. Prof. in 2018. During his work he was appointed acting Dean of Faculty of Science (1997-1999, 2017-till now) and Chairman of Chemistry Department (2007-2011, 2015- 2017). He worked in many projects and most notably a joint project entitled “Building Competence in Epidemiology in Palestine” in the period 1995-2002. The project included many workshops, training courses, lectures, and scientific research published in several peer-reviewed journals. He spent 5 months in a sabbatical leave at Sabancɪ University/Turkey during the academic year 2010-2011 as part of Erasmus Mundus program supported by EU. He worked in the field of proton exchange membrane fuel cells. During the period 2012-2016 he represented Hebron University in a project entitled “Strengthening University-Enterprise Linkages in Palestine” or (STEP) supported by Tempus EU projects. His research main interests are: polymer chemistry, surface chemistry and occupational safety and work hygiene. He has 14 scientific publications including peer-reviewed book in the field of polymer chemistry (in Arabic).
