Dr. Naeem Akhtar received his BS and MS (Physical Chemistry) in 2010 from Department of
Chemistry, B. Z. University, Multan Pakistan. He was selected as a senior visiting scholar in 2011 to join
National Center for Nanoscience and Technology, Beijing China under the supervision of Prof. He. Tao
and was awarded excellent student award. In 2012, he won National institute for material science
(NIMS)-Waseda university joint Jr. Research assistantship and became the first Pakistani to Join NIMS as a
junior researcher. He started his Ph.D research work in April 2013 under the supervision renowned
Egyptian Scientist, Prof. Sherif El. Safty (Japan has proposed him formally to the Noble prize for
chemicals, because of his excellent work in the field of Nanotechnology). During Ph.D research work he
won Waseda University, Young Doctoral Scholarship for consecutive three years (1600000 JPY) and also
JASSO Honors Scholarship (65000 JPY/month) for a year. He was awarded Ph.D degree with entitle
“Doctor of Science” on March 25, 2016 by Waseda University on thesis title “Nanoelectrochemical
sensor for selective molecular recognition”. After his return to home country Pakistan, he joined Institute
of Chemical Sciences, B. Z. University, Multan Pakistan as an assistant professor in Physical Chemistry on
July 28, 2016.
