Dr. Waqas Hassan Tanveer earned his PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University (SNU). Prior to joining RCCS as a Research Associate, he was working as an Assistant Professor, at National University of Science & technology (NUST)-School of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering (SMME). His research is mainly related to industrial waste carbon operated SOF/ECs and their performance enhancement through Nano-Structural control and Artificial Intelligence. He has also worked on control strategies of Hybrid Electric/Fuel Cell Vehicles.  During Ph.D. and Post-Doctoral research, Waqas published in more than 15 SCI journal papers (Impact factor >60), 20 international conferences, and 1 patent. He was the recipient of "Graduate Scholarship for Excellent Foreign Student (GSFS)" and "Brain Korea (BK) 21 Plus scholarship" for his PhD and research work accomplishments at SNU. He has also received numerous "Best Research Poster, Best Presenter, and Best Essay Awards at various National and International forums.  Additionally, Waqas has considerable Industrial Experience in a) Aeronautical Design / FEA Analysis, b) Production / Maintenance of Sapphire Startup plants.


Research Interests:

His main research areas are Electrochemical Energy Systems (Design / Modelling), Waste Carbon & Carbon Dioxide Co-volarisation, Material Characterization and Thin Film Deposition.
