Summary

I am Dr. Rashid Iftikhar. My research areas include nutrient based pollution in aquatic environments and microalgal biotechnology. Major disturbances to the biological, chemical and geological processes that regulate the flow of energy and matter in the environment have led to the development of new approaches to tackle these challenges.
