Ateeq ur Rehman

University of Agriculture, Pakistan


Dr. Ateeq ur Rehman is originally from Pakistan. He received his undergraduate and graduate education in Physics at University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan. He worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Physics at the Forman Christian College (A Chartered University) until he received a fully funded scholarship to pursue his Ph.D. Physics at Zhejiang University, China in Sep 2009. He completed his Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics in June 2013.

Since 2013, he has been working as Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan. His principal motivation has been to study the surfaces, interface electronic and structural properties, interface formation, and nature and strength of interaction of organic molecules with inorganic substrates. On one hand, he addressed the point of address by using a cluster of mature surface science techniques (UPS, XPS, STM). On the other hand, he used state-of-the-art density functional theory calculations (DFT) for the interpretation of the experimental data to gain a comprehensive picture. Thus, his research bridges the gap between experimental and theoretical studies. In addition to studying surface and interface physics, Dr. Rehman has also been working on materials synthesis for next-generation energy storage devices. He is the reviewer of several high-impact factor journals; including PCCP and JAP just to mention. Besides, Dr. Rehman has presented his work at several international conferences. During the last several years I have been chiefly involved in developing new courses, starting new programs, teaching, administration, and research activities.
