Biography

Mohsin is currently a PhD student in Chemical & Materials Engineering (School of Engineering) working under the supervision of Professor Paul Hallett and Dr Waheed Afzal. My research work focuses on the developemnt of biomaterials from natural resources using plants as a main source and investigate the physical properties such as surface activity and rheological study of these biomaterials, which demonstrate the performance and stability of these biomaterials over a range of higher temprature conditions.

Qualifications:

2015- M.Sc Chemical Engineering (University of The Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan)

2011- B.Sc Chemical Engineering (University of engineering and technology, Lahore, Pakistan)

Career:

2017 to date: Post graduate teaching assistant (part time), University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK.

2015: Research scholar, University of The Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan.
