"I am an Environmentalist, and, therefore, I recommend you care about it before it's too late"
My complete name is Qazi Asif Saleh Qureshi and I was born to educator parents on 3rd of February 1986. I received my education till my first university degree from my home town (Nawabshah, Sindh-Pakistan). I started my career with my first job as Lab Engineer at the same engineering department (i.e. Energy and Environment Engineering Department) where I was awarded my Bachelor’s at the Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering, Science and Technology (QUEST), Nawabshah, Pakistan. After about two years of work, I was offered Lectureship at Institute of Environmental Engineering and Management at an other renowned university of the Country, the Mehran University of Engineering and Technology (MUET), Jamshoro, Pakistan where I worked for a period of about a year. In 2012, I was offered and awarded a faculty position at QUEST again along with a scholarship to pursue my higher studies abroad under a faculty development project of Higher Education Commission (HEC) Islamabad, Pakistan. I completed my PhD studies in Applied Geochemistry at Luleå University of Technology, Luleå, Sweden on 15th December 2016 under supervision of Prof. Björn Öhlander and Associate Prof. Christian Maurice. I am currently working as Assistant Prof. at QUEST since 13th January 2017.
Being a PhD in Applied Geochemistry, Licentiate in Applied Geology and Bachelor's in Energy and Environment, I have mainly worked with land and water pollution to ensure sustainable industrialisation and development.
