Dr. Saira Bibi

Assistant Professor


Dr Saira Bibi has been indulged in cutting edge research in the field of Material Science and Engineering since 2015. She has worked on high temperature coatings of rare earth magnetic material and their oxidation and corrosive resistance behavior under the supervision of Prof. Jiang Cheng Bao in Beihang University, China. After her PhD, she worked as assistant professor in Institute of Advanced Materials, Bahauddin Zakaria University, Multan for one year. She has rich experience on several material characterization techniques using Atomic/Magnetic Force Microscopy, Ultra-High Vacuum chamber handling, XRD (Four circle crystal diffractometer), Field emission Scanning Electron Microscope, Scanning Electron Microscope, Vibrating Sample Magnetometer, NIM-500C.

Her current research includes nanocomposite, nanotechnology, magnetic materials, ceramics materials and thermal barrier coatings.
