My expertise is in chemical sciences with several years of teaching and research. I have developed a genuine teaching and research interest in analytical, organic, and general chemistry with a special emphasis on pharmaceuticals, quality control and method validation. During the course of my research, I have extensively use Spectrophotometric techniques for the determination of Iron (Fe), Nickel (Ni) and Cobalt (Co) as Ion-Association Systems and their Analytical Applications. Instrumentation and their appropriate application in cost effective manner is the key of success specially in analytical chemistry. I would like to teach and utilize my strong skill of modern instrumentation method like Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS), X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Polarography, Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) etc., for trace metal analysis and other applications.

My past pursuit in pharmaceutical industry lead me to expand my research skills into method development, formulation and quality control testing of Carprofen, Levothyroxine and Metformin pharmaceuticals according to current good manufacturing and laboratory practices (cGMP, cGLP), regulated by the US food and drug administration (FDA). Successfully my knowledge was utilized in the industry in analyzing pharmaceutical raw material, process intermediates, finished products and stability samples. I have also strengthened the industry quality control by performing laboratory tests, analysis according to GMP's meeting timelines on a quality first basis. Calculate, interpret, evaluate data and notify out of trend (OOT), out of specification (OOS) results and write standard operating procedure (SOP’s).

My carrier goal is to learn and solidify my knowledge of modern chemistry on one hand while on the other I am keenly interested in sharing my experience to others and wants to prepare/grow a well trained network of skill work force to meet the challenges of modern chemical industry particularly for phermaceuticals.
