Faculty Profile

Dr. Mumtaz Ali Sheikh

Assistant Professor

Department Of Physics

Mumtaz Ali Sheikh completed his BSc (Hons) degree in Computer Science from LUMS in 2004, graduating on the Dean’s Honors List. He then joined the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL), University of Central Florida from where he completed his PhD degree in Optics in 2009. His PhD work was in the area of extreme environment high temperature optical sensors in which he demonstrated novel temperature sensing techniques using Silicon Carbide. His technical contributions have been reported in several international journals and conference proceedings in the areas of optical sensors, confocal microscopy and laser beam analysis. His academic achievements include receiving the Society of Photo-Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) Scholarship in 2009, LUMS Merit Scholarship from 2001-2004 and world distinction in A-Level Mathematics.
