Deedar Nabi, PhD

Deedar Nabi did his PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology at Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. In his PhD work, he showed that comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GC×GC) could be coupled to risk assessment, leading to tangible benefits for the environmental science community. He mapped several environmental partitioning, transport, and uptake properties onto the GC×GC chromatograms of nonpolar complex mixtures. 

Previously, he did Masters in Environmental Engineering and Physical Chemistry respectively from the National University of Science and Technology (NUST), Islamabad and the Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad. During his master thesis work he successfully developed titanium dioxide based nanomaterials to remediate arsenic from the drinking water.

He also served as an environmental consultant with different firms and carried out environmental impact assessment and monitoring studies of facilities such as the largest fertilizer plant in Pakistan, power plant, landfill sites. 

He would like to continue improving his understanding of the fate, behavior and exposure of persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic compounds existing as complex mixtures in natural and engineered environments.
