Dr. Shahana Khurshid is an adjunct faculty in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at SBASSE, LUMS. She obtained her B.S. in Environmental Engineering from MIT, M.S. in Biomedical Engineering and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. After her Ph.D. she has worked at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research is on air pollutants and their ability to cause adverse health effects. In addition to physical and chemical characterization of air pollutants, she studies biologically relevant metrics of particles such as the concentration of reactive oxygen species and the oxidative potential of particles, as well as biological characterization of lung cells exposed to pollutants. 


Seminar is being held in person and the meeting room will be projected over Zoom for those who cannot join in person.
