Dr. Fatima Jalid is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar. She studied Chemical Engineering at the NIT Srinagar, Kashmir and graduated summa cum laude in 2015. Since 2016, she was working as a Trainee Faculty at NIT Srinagar, while
simultaneously doing her Doctorate from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. She has been a recipient of Gandhian Young Technological Award, 2018. She works in the area of computational catalysis,specifically on understanding transformations of hydrocarbons using ab initio microkinetic modelling. She has explored a number of reactions - hydrodeoxygenation, non-oxidative dehydrogenation, biogas reforming, CO2 assisted oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane employing microkinetic modelling and density functional theory calculations, which have been published in reputed journals. Besides research and teaching, she spends time in reading, photography and writing.
