Usama Bin Shakeel

Posted on: April 19th, 2020 by ituadmin

Mr. Usama’s interest in computers and digital gadgets was cultivated at an early stage by the considerable encouragement of his father. He is an architect and allowed Mr. Usama to experiment with the hardware and software of personal computers at his firm. Technology was an emerging trend in his third world country, with struggling middle class families striving to get a grip on it. He is guilty of forcefully inserting RAMs into a system in the opposite direction and getting it burnt. Through the endless support of his family and academic trials and errors, he managed to complete his undergrad in Computer Engineering from the National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences. His perseverance and passion for the subject led him to academic success of winning a gold medal in Computer Engineering. He was on the dean merit list every semester in his undergrad and scored a CGPA of 4.0 during his Masters in Computer Sciences. He managed to maintain his performance in Master’s as well and was on the dean merit list for all four semesters. Managing challenges and resolving complex problems is his forte.

Haris Mehmood received his B.E. Electronics Engineering and MS Electrical Engineering degree, both from National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan, in 2009 and 2012, respectively. His research interests lie within domains of Semiconductor devices, Renewable Energy Technology, and Nanotechnology with several international peer-reviewed journals and conferences proceedings at his credit. He was awarded scholarship under prestigious TÜBİTAK “Research Fellowship Programme for International Researchers” by Turkish Government whereby he has worked as a Research Fellow at The Center of Solar Energy Research and Applications (GÜNAM), Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey.

During his stay at METU Turkey, Haris has attained both numerical and experimental skills pertaining to the development of silicon solar cell. As a part of METU ambitious plan to design solar cells with higher efficiencies (>23%), he was able to achieve the required target with a novel silicon-based device using an industrial physical device simulator (Silvaco TCAD) and his work was published in a good impact factor journal. It was the first time in the history of GÜNAM METU Turkey that a design-based solar cell paper was recognized in a reputed journal. Moreover, he has also fabricated and characterized the novel thin layer in nanometer (nm) regime for innovative carrier-selective contact for solar cells that opened up a new horizon for technological development of highly efficient devices. Concomitantly, he has attended several conferences abroad and gave presentations about his research work. He had served as a Lecturer at The University of Faisalabad. Haris is also a reviewer of Springer Silicon journal.
