Personal profile


Currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto University Sheringal, Dir upper, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. Recently, I have been selected as Adjunct Research Fellow in School of Biological Sciences, The University of Western Australia

My recent research focus is on bioremediation of heavy metals using bacteria, plant nutrition espeecially phosphorus nutrition of legumes using Bio-orano-phos, nanonutrition of crop plants and their toxicity in our environment. Have also experience regarding the treatment and reuse of textile industrial wwastewater, algal biochar
