Dr. Imtiaz received his Ph.D degree under the supervision of Prof. Hon Wai Lam, at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom where he developed new synthetic methodologies involving C-H functionalization of inert bonds. Later, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the same group developing enantioselective C-H bond functionalization methods for the synthesis of carbo- and heterocyclic compounds. In his M.Phil degree at the Department of Chemistry, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan, he worked on the design and synthesis of five-and six-membered bioactive heterocycles. After that, he worked as a research associate at the same department working on the synthesis and application of heterocycles as potential candidates for Alzheimerís disease. He is currently working as a research fellow at School of Chemistry, Cardiff University, United Kingdom. He has a good contribution towards the scientific and academic community with numerous research publications in highly prestigious international journals and various presentations in both national and international conferences. His research interests include heterocyclic chemistry, focused mainly on the development of new synthetic methodologies and biological evaluation of five- and six-membered heterocycles.
