Muhammad Umer Iqbal
In 2020, I was graduated in Materials Science and Engineering from the Institute of Space Technology (IST) Islamabad. Where I completed my thesis on thermoelectric functional ceramic oxides. For almost two years, I worked as a graduate research assistant at the same Institute on the project titled “Hybrid Structured Thermoelectric Materials for Energy-harvesting, Cooling and Biomedical Applications “.
This experience has further increased my research interest in clean-energy materials. So, I got highly satisfied and motivated by my prospective PhD research on clean hydrogen synthesis in Funglass.
