Dr. Wafaa Khater is a faculty member at the physics department in Birzeit University, Palestine. She is the current dean of the science faculty and chaired the physics department and directed the master program for three years between 2013 and 2016. In 2014, she was awarded a five-year regular associateship at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Italy and still coordinationg a collaboration with the Physics-without-Frontier program there to benifit Master students in Birzeit.
For the Master and PhD, she studied in the Institute of Physics and Technology, Bergen University, Norway under the supervision of Prof. Per Osland. Her research interests are in the field of High-Energy Particle Physics, Phenomenology of Models beyond the Standard Model, CP violation and Higgs Physics. She is also 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”.
