Michael Naguib is Ken & Ruth Arnold Early Career Professor in Science and Engineering and assistant professor of Materials Physics and Engineering in the department of Physics and Engineering Physics at Tulane University, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Prior to joining Tulane in 2018, he was a Eugene Wigner Fellow (2014-2017) and Research Staff (2017-2018) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He received his M.S. and B.S. degrees in Metallurgical Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering in Cairo University, Egypt. After that, he earned his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University in 2014. Naguib is an inventor on the first patent on two-dimensional transition metals carbides and carbonitrides, so-called MXenes in addition to two other patents. He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed papers in international journals (with more than 13,000 citations and h-index of 38), and presented more than 20 keynote, plenary and invited talks at number of international conferences and universities. He has received many awards, such as Robert L. Coble Award for Young Scholar and Ross Coffin Purdy Award from the American Ceramics Society, Kroto Award from Nanosmat, MRS Gold Graduate Student Award, Graduate Excellence in Materials Science (GEMS) Award, and was listed as Drexel University Forty- Under-Forty. His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of novel materials; including two-dimensional transition metals-based materials; for electrochemical energy storage and energy conversion.
