I am Banat Gul, born in a small village
of district Charsadda (KPK). My family has a modest rural background, whereby
my father was self-employed. He had a small piece of land which he toiled to
I am the first educated person of my family. I got my
early education from my home town. For higher education I moved to QAU
Islamabad and then to PIEAS, Islamabad.
Having a rural background, I am much more passionate
about further improving my education. I have worked in different colleges as a
lecturer prior to applying for HEC scholarship.
I visited to University of Antwerp, Belgium through
HEC IRSIP Program. The opportunity of studying in a multi-cultural and multi-ethnic
environment in Belgium, broadened my horizon. I was introduced to new vistas of
knowledge and recent advancements in field of my interest. I learnt different
ways of tackling a complex situation. My problem solving skills improved a lot
and this personality development actually enhanced my self-confidence. Higher
studies is not all about memorizing books or understanding existing knowledge.
It extends beyond that, i.e you struggle to bring innovation in your thinking
Recently I am working as Assistant Professor at Department of Physics, UOL. My area of Research is Modeling and Simulation of Industrial Plasma sources used in different industries like semiconductor industry, Medical Science, Lightning etc.
