PhD Researchers

Muhammad Umar Farooq
Umer is final year PhD student working on the crystal engineering and charge density studies of anti malarial drug Pyrimethamine. His work has already been published in Acta Cryst C. (03 publications). He uses high resolution crystallographic and computational methods to study the electrostatic properties of pharmaceutical compounds.
Ijaz-ul-Haq
During his M.Phil. he worked on removal of dyes from aqueous solution by raw and magnetically modified fruit waste of Trapa natans. Now he is the second year PhD scholar working under the supervision of Dr. Sajida Noureen in the Material chemistry laboratory. His work is aimed at biodiesel synthesis from local abundantly available non-edible oils, their characterization and applications.
Nazra Nawaz
She worked on the crystal structure, disorder modeling and charge density analysis of amino acids. Now she is working as PhD scholar in the material chemistry laboratory. Her research interests are the characterization of kidney stones and to design renal calculi inhibitors.
Faisal Shehzad
He is the second year PhD scholar in the Material chemistry laboratory where he is working on optimization the conditions for biodiesel synthesis, making their blends and characterization. During his M.Phil. he worked on the radioisotopes for cancer treatment.
