Sultan Qaboos University, Oman 0000-0003-0497-8412

Osama K. Abou-Zied obtained his B.S. degree from Cairo University, Giza, Egypt (1988). He worked as a Postdoc/Research Associate in different institutes in the United States before joining Sultan Qaboos University, Muscat, Oman, in 2003, where he is now an Associate Professor of physical chemistry. Abou-Zied and his group investigate the spectroscopy of novel biological probes that may be used to understand certain mechanisms in DNA and proteins. They try to understand the solvent influence on chemical systems and correlate that to the role of solvation in biological systems, for example, the importance of hydrophobic interactions in processes such as protein folding.
