Dr Asad Jamal obtained his PhD from the Institute of Physics, University of Freiburg, Germany in September 2016. As an experimental physicist, he studied the phenomenon of self‐assembly of achiral organic molecules into ordered nanostructures via tuning the interplay of intermolecular interactions in a German‐French collaborative project within the framework of the International Research Training Group (IRTG) “Soft Matter Science”.
In March 2017, he joined the Tribology group at Imperial College London as postdoctoral researcher. From March 2017 to February 2019, he done a research project in collaboration with a European industrial partner to explore the basic mechanism of commonly used corrosion inhibitors and their potential effectiveness as friction modifiers.
In March 2019 he joined the EDEN 2020 project where his research aims to probe, quantify and map the mechanical properties of cerebral white matter using an Atomic Force Microscopy based approach which will help to understand in a predictable manner the localised mechanical behaviour of brain undergoing drug infusion and to develop a model.
