Work experience and projects

Jan-July 2011

Rheology as a probe to assess the degradation of EPM rubber

Feb-Jun 2010

UCL- Belgium collaboration with INEOS on study of the rheology of branched m-PE

During the project I worked on the

  • Chemical characterization and detection of long chain branching(LCB)
  • Rheological consequences of presence of LCB in the industrial samples
  • Modeling of the effect of presence of LCB on rheological behavior of the samples
  • Effect of presence of LCB on crystallization of the samples

Sept-Jan 2009

UCL-Belgium collaboration with CTP (Centre Terre et Pierre-Belgium) on the study of recycling of used container products (Technopoly-recycling)

A comprehensive method for characterization and recycling of waste was developed. This included physical and chemical techniques for identification of parts and then processing the waste for high strength functional parts. March 2008-2009

Apr-Sept 2009

Investigation of the Characteristics of thermo-mechanical Polystyrene-Unsaturated Polyester Reactive Blends. (M.Sc polymer and process engineering)

March 2008-2009

Lab Engineer/Lecturer (research) in Polymer and Process Engineering Department, University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan

Sep 2007-Mar 2008

Utility-safety Engineer (Process department) at Fauji Fertilizer Company (pvt) Pakistan (Goth Machhi)

Sept-Oct 2007

Engro Ashahi(pvt) Ltd Pakistan, compounding of polymers with Different Additives Training

July-Aug 2007

JGC-DESCON (pvt) Ltd Pakistan, Project and Quality department Internship

Jun-Aug 2006

Rupafil Polyester (Pvt) Ltd, Fiber manufacturing and spinning department Internship

during my internship I worked in different departments of plant and lead a team of four members to handle a project of Filament breakage and quality control
