PhD Researchers

Muhammad Umar Farooq
He is the second year PhD scholar in our Material chemistry laboratory. His previous work was to study the charge density properties of small molecules and the pharmaceutical cocrystals. His current research interests are aimed at protein crystallography.
Shahid Iqbal
He is the second year PhD scholar in the Material chemistry laboratory where he worked on Interactions of sulfonamide drugs. His research focuses on Interactions and formulation of drugs and co-crystals of different classes and to study the thermo-kinetic behavior of co-crystals.
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.
