Mr . Ahmad Tabish
I am the Youngest Scientific Researcher felicitated with Australian Prime Minister's Distinguished Global Talent - 2020; awarded by Department of Home Affairs, Australian Government.
I have been associated with prestigious organizations globally like University of Queensland of Australia, University of Newcastle of Australia, Aligarh Muslim University of India, Khalifa University and Petroleum Institute of UAE, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company of UAE, Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials of Australia, Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
I have also published an article related to new energy materials in the field of reducing Co2 emissions in international reputed journal: https://www.mdpi.com/2073-4344/10/1/95The pay in academia I was recognized early in my career by The University of Queensland, Australia in 2013 for “Dedication and Excellence in Research” for my research work supported by Australian Coal Association Research Program investigating the coal mining fatalities in Australian mines by the Pro Vice Chancellor of UQ, Dr Jessica Gallagher. During my stay at Australia, I was able to publish a research article in conference proceeding on a very important subject of Australian economy – fatalities and accidents in coal mines,: https://ro.uow.edu.au/coal/536/
This review focuses on recent advances and future prospects in the design and performance of perovskites for CO2 conversion, particularly emphasizing on the structure of the catalysts, defect engineering and interface tuning at the nanoscale, and conversion technologies and rational approaches for enhancing CO2 transformation to value-added chemicals and chemical feedstocks.
I was also felicitated by The Ambassador of Poland in Abu Dhabi, UAE since I was the first alumnus from the Petroleum Institute of Khalifa university to be awarded a fellowship by the Polish Academy of Sciences to at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPC PAS), in Warsaw, Poland in chemical sciences funded by the National Science Centre of Poland.

The chemical processes of catalysis and separation play a critical role in the petrochemical industry that is at the heart of the UAE’s economy, and are also important in the development and functions of membranes, reactors, materials, and renewable energy. The Center for Catalysis and Separation (CeCaS) is the UAE’s only research center focused on addressing the broad industrial challenges relating to these processes. The center provides a multiscale integrated approach to solve scientific and engineering problems that spans across scales and disciplines through its research themes. With its strong connections to industry and with international collaborators, the center aims to grow steadily, contributing to both, fundamental and applied research, serving the needs of KU and the region while also educating new generations.

Surface-Engineered Self-Healing Anti-Corrosion Particle Coatings for Pipes and Storage Tanks 2015 - 2017
THE PETROLEUM INSTITUTE of ADNOC, ABU DHABI, UAE (Aug 2015-2017)
Worked on the Research Project titled, “Surface-Engineered Self-Healing Anti-Corrosion Particle
Coatings for Pipes and Storage Tanks” sponsored by Gas Research Centre of Abu Dhabi. Study
evaluated the protection offered by coatings of commercially available porous materials against
the corrosion of mild steel in seawater, along with addition of different encapsulated nano
containers in the polymer matrix. Also synthesized self-healing organic coating formulations
based on Polylactide and incorporating Polypyrrole as an inhibiting agent.
Usage of laboratory equipment’s like Dip coater, Sonicator, Centrifuge,
Potentiostat for EIS analysis, UV Spectrometer, Analysis: FTIR, BET, XRD etc.
Project was a joint collaboration with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company of UAE.
Separation of Aerosol (oil/water) droplets from gas stream in a two phase flow 2015
TAKREER RESEARCH CENTRE (TRC), THE PETROLEUM INSTITUTE (PI) of ADNOC, ABU DHABI, UAE
Was working in the Takreer Research Centre (R&D Centre) on the project related to separation of Aerosol (oil/water) droplets from gas stream in a two phase flow. Studied the feasibility of using wiretube electrostatic separator on the removal of fine water and oil droplets from air stream based on corona discharge ionization process.

Comparative Analysis of Coal Fatalities in Australia, South Africa, India, China and USA, 2006-2010 2013
SUSTAINABLE MINERALS INSTITUTE (SMI), The UNIVERSITY OF QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
Worked on the research project titled, „RISKS IN OIL/GAS‟ and coal mining. The aim of the project was to analyze the risks involved in oil/gas industry so as to minimize the accidents in petroleum sector. Focused on other projects also like Coal mining fatalities using RISKGATE terminology. Website: http://www.riskgate.org/
Coal mining (especially underground) is considered one of the most hazardous industries, and as a result considerable focus is applied to eliminating or mitigating hazards through careful mine planning, equipment selection and certification, and development of management systems and procedures. Regulatory agencies have developed in-house methods for reporting, classification and tracking of fatalities and other incidents according to the type of event, often including consideration of different hazard types. Unfortunately, direct comparison of mining safety statistics between countries is confounded by considerable differences in the way that individual countries classify specific fatalities or incidents. This project presented a comparative analysis of coal mining fatality data in Australia, South Africa, India, China and the United States from 2006 to 2010. Individual classification definitions are compared between the five countries, and methods presented to normalise each country’s hazard definitions and reporting regimes around the RISKGATE framework of seventeen different priority unwanted events (or topics).
