Saim Saher is Assistant Professor of Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion at USPCAS-E UET Peshawar. He studied characterization and performance enhancement of SOFC materials during PhD research in University of Twente (Netherlands) , RWTH Aachen University (Germany) and University of Montpellier-II (France) funded by EUDIME EACEA-EU. Before, he had studied Aerospace Engineering from Seoul National University (SNU, South Korea) and graduated as M.Sc. Aerospace Engineering in 2010. He has served renown national and international organization such as NESCOM (Pakistan), UET Peshawar, Inorganic Membrane (IM) University of Twente (Netherlands), Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (South Korea) and Intelligent Control System Laboratory (SNU, South Korea).

His main research interests are Fuel Cell (SOFCs, PEMFCs), Solar Cell (DSSCs, Perovskite Solar Cell, Multi-junction Solar Cell), Biomass Gasification and Innovative Solutions for Green Building. He is expert of catalytic reactor design, oxide characterization by pulse isotope exchange (PIE) and conductivity relaxation (ECR) techniques, material and structure characterization, surface morphology and coatings.
