Personal statement:
Adeel Afzal (http://aafzal.com) studied Chemistry at Quaid-i-Azam University (Islamabad, Pakistan) and received M.Sc. (Chemistry) and M.Phil. (Organic Chemistry) degrees in 2002 and 2004, respectively. He earned Ph.D. (Dr. rer. Nat. in Chemistry) in 2007 from University of Vienna (Austria). He specialized in design, synthesis, and fabrication of synthetic antibodies based on molecularly imprinted polymers and ceramic thin films, and metal oxide nanoparticles as artificial receptor layers for mass-sensitive chemical sensors. Later, he served different higher education institutions, research centers, and industries in Pakistan. From 2010-2012, he worked as Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Bari (Italy) and developed high-temperature metal oxide semiconductor gas sensors and nanomaterials for catalytic applications. In 2012, he joined KFUPM Affiliated Colleges at Hafr Al-Batin (Saudi Arabia) as Assistant Professor of Chemistry. His research interests include synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanomaterials, polymers, and nanocomposites, development of chemical sensors, biomedical materials, and diagnostics.
