Hassaan Ahmad Butt graduated from the School of Chemical and Materials Engineering of the National University of Sciences and Technology in Islamabad, Pakistan in 2012. His thesis centered around the interaction of specialized materials with Electromagnetic radiation. He was awarded a national fellowship based on his project work in 2011 until his graduation, upon which he joined service as a Government Researcher.
During his tenure as a researcher, Hassaan’s work focused on various projects which included ceramic materials, specialized composite materials, composite sandwich structures, polymers and nano-particles. The application of this work was mainly in the aerospace sphere.
In 2014, Hassaan was awarded a full ride scholarship from the China Scholarship Council for pursuing his Maters studies at the Harbin Institute of Technology in China. He graduated in 2017 with his thesis work centering around Carbon Fiber Composites.
Currently at Skoltech, his research is aimed at polymer composite materials with nano reinforcements.
