Dr. Ullah received his Ph.D. (with distinction) in Chemical Sciences and Technologies in 2010 at the University of Genova, Italy working together at Southern Methodist University, USA. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow, Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure at the University of Alberta. He teaches a graduate course which deals with fundamentals in bio-based materials development, characterization, and various industrial applications. Aman has published more than 42 papers in reputed journals and 4 patents/patent applications. He has participated and presented his work at more than 90 National and international scientific meetings and conferences, including several invited, keynote and plenary lectures at conferences and research centers in Asia, Europe, and America. In addition, he has received several awards including Canadian Rising Star award in Global Health by Grand Challenges Canada.
Aman leads a research group on Lipid utilization - Polymers/Materials Chemistry and mandate of this group are to develop new monomers, biopolymers, biomaterials and bionanomaterials from lipids (plant oils) and other renewable resources for industrial applications. Therefore, his major research interests are in the synthesis of monomers, biopolymers, nano-engineered biopolymers, nano-biocomposites and bioconjugates from renewable resources for various applications.
