WELCOME TO DR. AFZAL'S PERSONAL WEBSITE!

This website is primarily designed to present an overview of our research and on-going projects for possible future research collaborations with academic and industrial partners. Our research lies at the interface of chemistry, materials science, and nanotechnology. We are interested in the questions related to the development of advanced materials and smart devices for improving environment, health, and lifestyle.

Broadly, our work can be classified into four inter-connected research themes: (a) Nanomaterials, (b) Chemical Sensors, (c) Polymers and Nanocomposites, and (d) Biomedical Materials and Diagnostics. These research areas incorporate a significant component of synthetic materials chemistry, but we are also involved in the characterization, fabrication, and testing of a variety of materials including polymer networks, composites, nanoparticles, bioceramics etc. In addition, we are always enthused to explore new materials and applications. Therefore, we welcome the opportunity to discuss collaborative research projects in related fields of chemistry, materials science, and-or nanotechnology.
