Izaz-i-Kamal & Sitara-i-Imtiaz

Professor Emeritus, leading researcher and a versatile educator with distinguished academic carrier producing large number of Ph.D., M.Phil. and M.E. research scholars. He is honored with large number of National Awards, including Izaz-e-Kamal and Sitar-e-Imtiaz by President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan for his achievements in scientific research.

He is also a well known scholar having more than 35 years of teaching and research experience at higher education. He has administrated number of fully funded research schemes and various academic tasks, with a national reputation for launching highly productive research workspace, in spite of meager research facilities available.

He is actively committed to the field of research yielding large number of publications in national and international journals. A large number of them are in the field of chromatography and electrophoresis for the analytical method development (metals, non-metals and biological active compounds from wide variety of real samples); the synthesis of a number of schiff base polymers; new stationary phases for gas chromatography and sensitive liquid chromatography procedures for the determination of pesticide malathion; developed new analytical procedures for the determination of bio-active compounds including markers for cancer, diabetic and uremic patients.
