Nisar Ahmed received his Ph.D from the POSTECH under Brain Korea Fellowship. Further, he got highly competitive Novartis NIBR Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of Zurich, Switzerland. Subsequently, he joined the University of Bristol. Currently, He is Marie Curie Research Fellow under prestigious COFUND fellowship at Cardiff University, UK (2017-Present, Independent Research) and Adjunct Faculty at International Center for Chemical and Biological Sciences (ICCBS, 2018-Present). Moreover, he is a Visiting Scientist at the University of Bristol and Cambridge (2017-Present). He also works as an editorial board member of chemistry research journals.
His research focuses on Synthetic Electrochemistry and Supramolecular Chemistry. The main strands of his research are (1) the development of a metals-free electrochemical methodology for the synthesis of bioactive heterocyclic compounds by using batch and flow electro-microreactors, (2) the development of advanced electrochemical microreactors to perform reactions at variable temperatures, and to handle solid formation during the reactions by application of ultrasound (3) synthesis of fluorescent probes for selective molecular recognition. His research is interdisciplinary, combining several aspects of chemistry, chemical engineering, and chemical biology.
