Dr. Muhammad Kashif is working as Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department at UCP, Lahore. He joined UCP in 2014 and has 14 years of academic and engineering experience. He obtained his undergraduate degree from UET, Lahore with honors and his master’s and Ph.D. degree from UPMC, Paris-VI, Paris, France. Prior to his PhD, he worked as an engineer in a research-based organization in Pakistan. He also worked as an adjunct lecturer during his stay in France and taught courses at UPMC Paris-VI. He has several publications in international journals and conference proceedings like combustion and flame, journal of environmental management, and optics express. He regularly reviews articles for prestigious national and internal journals e.g. combustion and flame, energy and fuels, combustion science and technology, journal of energy, journal of fuel, and also projects of the National Research Program for Universities. His main research areas are energy and environment, internal combustion engines, optical diagnostics, solar and wind energy converters, and renewable/alternate fuels. He has also worked as an expert member with many national bodies including the National Curriculum Review Committee for Mechanical Engineering, the Standing committee of LCCI on coal and renewable fuels, and the Pakistan HVACR Society Lahore chapter.
