Research Interest

I am primarily interested in understanding the Environmental Segments viz., Food Chain Contamination and Health Risk of heavy metal(loids)/trace elements, Remediation of Contaminated Soil and Water, Pesticide Bioaccessibility and Bioaccumulation and Pollution Bioassay. Climate Change/Global warming

I am an HEC approved PhD Supervisor since 2012.

I have more than 60 research publications with over 1900 citation (i10-index 30, h-index 19) & above 150 cumulative impact factor to my credit as first, corresponding and co-authors (https://scholar.google.com.pk/citations?user=juW30HcAAAAJ&hl=en), (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Said_Muhammad) and has produced around a dozen of postgraduate students in the subjects of my interest.

I have carried out as a PI a research project entitled “Pollution Assessment of Landfill Sites in the Hattar Industrial Estate (HIE) using Integrated Geochemical and Geophysical Techniques”. This project is sponsored by Higher Education Commission through HEC-NRPU program.
