Catalysis & Reaction engineering group is one of the leading and pro-active research groups at department of chemical engineering with an aim to promote research in multi-dimensional catalysis/photo catalysis for production of bio fuels, water splitting, dyes degradation and efficient chemical reactions overall. The group also has members working in areas process modeling and simulations.

Head of CREG:

Dr. Murid Hussain (Associate Professor/HoD, ChE)

The group is headed by Pakistan’s renowned scientist Dr. Murid Hussain. Dr. Hussain has published more than 100 research articles in well know SCI journals in the field with cumulative impact factor >600. His research work has more than 2400 citations and an overall h-index of 29 and i10-index of 62. He has attended several renowned international conferences held in various developed countries. He is recipient of "BEST RESEARCHER AWARD of Chemical Engineering for the year 2017 by COMSATS University Islamabad, Lahore Campus". He has been ranked among the top productive scientists of Pakistan in the field of Engineering and received Research Productivity Awards (in years 2015, 2016, 2017) by Pakistan Council for Science and Technology (PCST).

Dr. Hussain is currently leading Catalysis & Reaction Engineering Research Group and has a diverse working experience on the development of nanomaterials, heterogenous catalysis, photocatalysis and their applications in the area of energy and environment. The research group with MS & PhD students is currently working on several funded applied projects (SRGP, TDF, NRPU) for research and products development and is striving to promote academia-industry linkage.
