Faculty Profile

Dr. Salman Noshear Arshad

Assistant Professor

Department Of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering

Dr. Salman N. Arshad received BS in Metallurgy and Materials Engineering from GIK Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology, Pakistan, and then moved to South Korea for Masters in Materials Science and Engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). At KAIST he developed novel bottom-up methods to synthesize carbon nanotubes reinforced metal and ceramic nanocomposite materials with enhanced mechanical and multifunctional properties.

After working for one year as Research Associate at GIK Institute where he taught materials engineering courses and developed laboratory courses, Dr. Arshad went to USA where he received Masters in Aerospace Engineering and PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At UIUC, he developed optimized polymer and carbon nanofibers with modulated surfaces for enhanced strengthening and toughening for structural composite materials. He also worked on developing bulk nanostructured alloys using high temperature severe plastic deformation with grain and second phase precipitate sizes on the order of 10 nanometer.

Dr. Arshad's research focuses on engineered nanomaterials (nanofibers, nanocomposites, multi-phase alloys) and use of advanced materials characterization techniques to investigate them. His research work has been published in high quality peer-reviewed journals such as Advanced Materials, Carbon, Polymer, Scripta Materialia, Acta Materialia, Journal of Materials Research, Scientific Reports and RSC Advances. He also earned a US Patent and has more than 1100 citations to date (Google Scholar).

Dr. Arshad is currently working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering.
