Waqas graduated with a bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering from COMSATS University (Sahiwal Campus) Pakistan and obtained a masters degree in the same field from Ghulam Ishaq Khan (GIK) Institute of Engineering Sciences, Pakistan. His master’s research project was to investigate the jetting phenomenon of Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) jet printing. In addition, he fabricated a silver nanoparticle-based miniature resistive sensor on a PET substrate using an EHD printing technique. In October 2018, he joined the Soft Matter Photonics group to study the deposition techniques of liquid crystal materials using drop-on-demand inkjet printing and EHD jet printing. He is also a graduate member at Exeter College.
