Dr. Nazish Rubab

Associate Professor


Dr. Nazish Rubab, received her PhD degree in Physics (Space Plasma Physics) from Karl-Franzens University, Graz Austria in 2011. Her major research contributions extend from theoretical Dusty Space Plasma, Waves and Instabilities in Ionospheric regions to Multi-Mission Spacecraft Environment Interaction. Previously, she had been serving Institute of Space Technology (IST), Islamabad, Pakistan since July 2011. She had been Research Associate for 5 years under ASICTP (Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics), Italy. She has secured a number of HEC-NRPU and PSF research projects and supervised various M.Phil. students. In 2018, she received Ernst Mach Follow-up Grant for a three months research stay at Austrian Space Research Institute. She is also recipient of PCST (Pakistan Council of Science and Technology) Research Productivity award in 2008 and 2017 respectively. Currently, she was awarded HEC-Postdoctoral fellowship 2020-2021.
