1. Member Academic Council and Academic Coordinator

I am Dr. Fahim, PhD in Plant Breeding & Genetics working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Agriculture at Hazara University, Mansehra, Pakistan. My research interests include the development of wheat cultivars that use water more efficiently and better adapt to increasingly hostile production conditions. My major research achievements include the development of two wheat varieties “Kohat-2017” and "Fahim-2019" for the rainfed areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Before joining Hazara University, Mansehra in December 2018, I worked as Wheat Breeder (Research Officer) at Barani Agricultural Research Station, Kohat in Pakistan for six years. I got an opportunity to visit Plant Breeding Institute, The University of Sydney, Australia as visiting Research Fellow for the period of six months. Moreover, I represent Pakistan at International Forum as Country Representative from CIMMYT-Pakistan at International Workshop on Smut and Bunt, held during May 2016 at Izmir Turkey. Furthermore, I have been selected as “Young Scientist of Pakistan” to attend Global Young Scientist Summit, 2018 in Singapore, I visited Kenya to attend two weeks trainings on stem rust scoring in September-October 2018. I have published several research articles in various national and international journals and have attended several conferences, workshop, and trainings.
