Early Academic Pursuits:
I embarked on my academic journey with a Bachelor's degree in Physics from Bahauddin Zakariya University Multan, Pakistan. This foundational period laid the groundwork for my passion for research and exploration in the field of physics.
Following my bachelor's degree, I took on the role of a Physics Lecturer at Superior College Multan from 2019 to 2020. During this time, I aimed to instill scientific attitudes and appreciation among secondary school students while identifying their scientific interests and fostering career development.
Simultaneously, I gained hands-on experience in various laboratories, delving into Spectroscopy and Modern Physics, Analog Electronics, Digital Electronics, Experimental Physics, Multiferroics Testing Lab, Thin Film Technology Lab, Chemical Lab, and Nano-Technology Lab. These experiences equipped me with a diverse set of skills and techniques, including Sol-gel, Hydrothermal, Solid-state, Modified Hummers method, and Co-precipitation techniques.
Contributions and Research Focus:
In pursuit of academic excellence, I pursued a Master of Philosophy in Solid-State Physics at The University of the Punjab Lahore, Pakistan, from 2020 to 2022. My research culminated in a thesis titled "Utilization of Sr2Ni2O5/rGO composites as electrode material in supercapacitor," earning me a commendable grade of 3.6/4.00.
Furthermore, I've actively contributed to the scientific community through publications in reputable journals, exploring topics such as supercapacitors, graphene-based electrode materials, electromagnetic interference shielding, and advancements in supercapacitor electrodes through MOF.
Accolades and Recognition:
My dedication to academic excellence and research has been recognized through various honors and awards, including the PM Laptop Scheme, College Scholarship, and CM Solar Panel Scheme. These acknowledgments reflect my commitment to maintaining high academic standards.
I've also had the privilege of participating in conferences, workshops, and seminars, such as the 5th National Symposium on Laser Matter Interaction, International Conference on Applied Physics & Engineering, and International Workshop on Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion, among others.
Impact and Influence:
My research interests encompass a wide array of topics, including Composites Materials, Graphene Oxide Composite, Nanomaterials, Transition Metal Oxide, Li-ion batteries, and Electrode materials. These areas showcase my commitment to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and contributing to advancements in the field.
Legacy and Future Contributions:
My journey so far has been marked by continuous learning, hands-on experience, and a passion for research. As I move forward, I am eager to leverage my skills and expertise in XRD, SEM, Electrochemical workstation, TGA/DSC, and EDX to make meaningful contributions to the world of physics.
