Considering the human population expansion worldwide, depletion of available resources and increasing environmental pollution, it is of worthwhile to introduce new recycling methods which can produce next generation cost efficient materials. My PhD reserach work is foucused on “Next-generation of composite materials for building and environmental applications through the green chemistry approach”.
I graduated in MS Biotechnology from Virtual University of Pakistan with the award of Gold-Medal on distinguish performance. On government funded scholarship, I started my research career from “National Institute of Vacuum Science and Technology (NINVAST)”, Islamabad and developed my research in the multidisciplinary field of material science and engineering. In the same field, one of my articles (Frontiers in plant science. 2016 31;7:1330.) have won “Outstanding Research Paper of the Year” Award by Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistan (March-2018). In June 2019, I also got an approtunity to present my work in “Gordon Research Conference (GRC)” on “Clusters and Nanostructures”, Switzerland. November, 2019, I joined PhD program at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM) of the Polytechnic University of Marche. I aimed to develop next generation high cost composite materials from low cost waste materials for building and environmental applications.
