Dr Jibran Khaliq

Senior Lecturer

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Dr. Jibran Khaliq joined Northumbria University in September 2017 after successful postdoctoral experience gained at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. The project was funded by Saudi Basic Industrial Corporation, the 4th largest multinational company in the world. Dr. Khaliq managed to raise 375K euros alongside 3 papers and 3 patent applications to United States Patents and Trademark office during his 3 years at Delft. From 2011 to 2013, Dr. Khaliq was involved in developing Ultra hard ceramics for body armours at one of the most successful spin out companies in London (Nanoforce technology ltd.).

Dr. Khaliq was awarded Doctor of Philosophy, (Ph.D.) in Advance energy materials from Queen Mary University of London in late 2014.
