Professor Khan’s multidisciplinary research has covered areas such as wear-corrosion synergy, nano-coating incorporating tribo-corrosion issues, thermodynamics and many other fields linked to sustainable methodologies, and low carbon technology.
His international research and subject knowledge have also given him the opportunity to contribute to committees and international affiliations such as The Ministry of Defence, NASA Materials Testing and Corrosion Control Branch in the U.S., and the National Institute of Technology in India.
