Faculty Profile

Dr. Basit Yameen

Associate Professor

Department Of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering

Dr. Basit Yameen received his M.Sc. degree (1998-2000) in the subject of Chemistry with distinction (awarded a gold medal and an academic roll of honor) from Government College University, Lahore, Pakistan. During early 2001, he moved to the Department of Chemistry, Quaid-e-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan, where he completed his M.Phil. degree (2001-2003) with a specialization in Organic Chemistry while carrying out his one year thesis research in the field of Polymer Chemistry. It was during this period where he developed an interest in the field of Polymer Science. He was later awarded a Ph.D. scholarship from the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan and received his Ph.D. degree (2004-2008) from Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany for his research work which was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Knoll in the Materials Science Research Group of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, Germany. During his Ph.D., he has been working in close collaboration with Siemens AG (Medical Solutions and Vacuum Technology, Erlangen, Germany). After his Ph.D., he stayed at Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research as a post doctoral research fellow. During this time he worked for Brigl & Bergmeister GmbH, Niklasdorf, Austria, who sponsored his stay for a project concerning modification of paper surface properties. During his Ph.D. and post doctoral stay at Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, he published several research articles in peer reviewed journals and chapter contributions to two books titled as "Surface Design: Applications in Bioscience and Nanotechnology" published by Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, Germany, and "Electroactive Polymers, Materials and Devices" published by Rajiv Beri for Macmillan Publishers India Ltd . Before joining SSE Dr. Basit Yameen has worked as Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, GIK Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology.
