Dr. Hafiz Muhammad Tauqeer secured his Doctorate title in Environmental Science from Government College University, Faisalabad. Presently, he holds a Lecturer position in the Department of Environmental Science, Hafiz Hayat Campus, University of Gujrat. He was appointed as Research Assistant in Environmental Protection Agency from February 2012 to 2013. He also served as Environmental Expert in an international construction project funded by Asian Development Bank owned by Snowy Mountain Engineering Cooperation (SMEC) and Engineering General Consultancy Pvt (SMEC-EGC). Apart from these, Dr. Tauqeer has won several international travel grants such as the 15th International Conference on the Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements (ICOBTE) held in Nanjing, China as well as from the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) for participation in Goldschmidt, Barcelona, Spain during 2019. His research interests consist of but not limited to the environmental pollution (soil, water, air), geochemistry of toxic heavy metals especially multi-contaminants in soils such as firing ranges, fate and toxicity of persistent organic pollutants (TNT, RDX, HMX) and their remediation with a particular focus on immobilization. Additionally, research related to ecotoxicology of emerging contaminants from industrial effluents (lead-acid batteries, pharmaceuticals, and micro plastics) is also welcome.
