I am currently investigating some new materials that use light to help break down pollutants in both water and air which can harm people and aquatic life. By turning these dangerous chemicals into harmless ones with these new materials, scientists are helping to clean up and protect our environment.

I did my bachelor's degree (in Physics) from the University of Peshawar and my master's degree (in Physics) from COMSATS University, Islamabad, Pakistan. During my master's research, I worked on battery materials at the Institute of Chemistry in Clermont-Ferrand, France. During this research work, I gained hands-on experience with a variety of scientific techniques that helped me analyse, test materials.
