Dr. Muhammad Faheem received his Bachelor’s (2007) and Master’s (2009) degrees in Chemical Engineering from the University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, where he also served as Lecturer from 2007 to 2009. Later he worked as Graduate Assistant with Dr. Andreas Heyden at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, USA, from where he received a Doctorate in Chemical Engineering in 2014. His work on modeling heterogenous catalysis at metal–water interfaces was twice funded by the US Department of Energy (USD 450,000/- and USD 380,000/-) and won him Outstanding Graduate Student Award (2014) from the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of South Carolina.
At present, he is an Associate Professor and Director of Postgraduate Studies at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, LUMS. His current research interests include heterogenous catalysis and reaction kinetics, thermodynamics and phase equilibria, process modeling and simulation, and energy optimization and process intensification. He has received grants from the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (PKR 15.0 million) and the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (PKR 15.3 million). He has supervised nine (9) Master’s projects, whereas another five (5) Master’s and three (3) Doctoral students are currently working under his supervision.
