Biography

Dr. Elwathig A. Elkhalifa is an Associate Professor of inorganic chemistry in the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, University of Khartoum, Sudan. Dr. Elkhalifa graduated from University of Khartoum, Faculty of Science, with a B.Sc. (Honours) degree in Chemistry (First Class with a University Prize). He obtained his M.Sc. (Chemistry) in the Graduate College, University of Khartoum in 1997; an year after that he accomplished his Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration at the Graduate College, University of Khartoum. Dr. Elkhalifa received his Ph.D. from School of Chemistry and Physics, University of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) in September 2010. He was a postdoctoral fellow and was then a scientific visitor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

Dr. Elkhalifa research activities are mainly focused in the field of catalysis and coordination chemistry. He published papers in reputable international journals (e.g. Applied Catalysis A: General, Journal of Molecular Catalysis A: Chemicals, Catalysis Letters and Applied Petrochemical Research); these publications received numerous citations. He supervised and currently supervising many students in B.Sc. (Honours) level, as well as postgraduate levels; including Postgraduate Diploma, M.Sc. and Ph.D. Also, Dr. Elkhalifa actively engaged in the University teaching process; he taught many courses of chemistry for undergraduate and postgraduate students (Postgraduate Diploma and Master students). It should be added that Dr. Elkhalifa worked as an Examiner (Internal and External Examiner) for many M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses in Sudan.

Considering the academically-related administrative experience, Dr. Elkhalifa worked as Head of the Department of Chemistry and, also, as Manager of the Central Laboratory at Faculty of Science, University of Khartoum. In the domain of the Department of Chemistry, Dr. Elkhalifa worked before as Secretary of the Departmental Board, Examinations Officer and Time-Table Coordinator. At the University level, Dr. Elwathig Elkhalifa worked as Manager of the Laboratories Technical Administration, University of Khartoum, Sudan.
