Dr Shahid Rasul


Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering


  • Dr. Rasul's major research focus is to develop efficient energy conversion and storage devices by photo-electrochemical processes for sustainable and renewable fuels.

    We conduct fundamental research in science and engineering of energy materials.

    We design the surface and bulk properties of materials in such a way that improves the enerygy efficiency of both energy conversion and storage devices.
