Imran Hanif

Doctor, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Environmental Inorganic Chemistry

Dr Hanif is working as a Postdoctoral researcher in the High Temperature Corrosion (HTC) Centre in the Division of materials and Energy. His current research activities are focusing to investigate and understand the microstructures of materials and their degradation/corrosion at high-temperatures using the Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The understanding of this fundamental phenomenon of high-temperature corrosion may offer a possibility to choose right materials used in the industrial power production sector either by varying the composition or the operating conditions to enhance the lifetime and their performance. The knowledge of such materials and their anticipated behavior under industrial conditions is crucial in the development of more economical, environmentally sustainable processes and systems.
Prior to join the HTC as postdoctoral researcher, Dr Hanif has completed his PhD in Ion Irradiation Modification of Silicon Nanowires in 2017 from the United Kingdom under the supervision of Dr Jonathan Hinks and Prof Stephen Donnelly and have been involved in teaching physics to undergraduate students for almost five years in Pakistan.
