Professor: Wafa Khater

Currently, the Dean of the Science Faculty at Birzeit University in Palestine. Prior to this, she was the Head of the physics department and director of the master program there between 2013 and 2016. Khater is also an associate at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Italy, before that she was a research fellow at the The Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg, Germany. Her research interests are in the field of High-Energy Particle Physics, Phenomenology of Models beyond the Standard Model, Dark Matter, CP violation and Higgs Physics. She did her PhD in the Institute of Physics and Technology (IFT), Bergen University (UiB), Norway. She is widely acknowledged to be an advocate of diversity in science and of marginalized scientists, where she has been featured internationally in several articles (Elsevier, IOP, SCiDev, ICTP, Sussex, and MIT) as a role model of Palestinian women in physics and a successful researcher in developing societies. She is a member in several organizations that focus on the role of Women in physics and science such as the “OWSD: Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World”. She is also the local coordinator of several community-outreach activities and building-capacity programs in physics.
