Abdul Rahman Abid, started as postdoc at Institute for Physics and Astronony as of 1st July 2022.

During this postdoctoral funding, we will mainly work with the characterization of modern photosensitizers and photoprotectors in free biomolecular complexes with the help of time-resolved and coincidence experiments performed at different large-scale experimental facilities like synchrotron radiation (SR), free-electron lasers (FEL), and high harmonic generation (HHG).

“I am from Islamabad, Pakistan. I did my BE in Pakistan, at National University of Science and Technology (NUST). Then I moved to Europe for an MSc in Physical Chemistry in a joint degree program of different institutions (Adam Mickiewicz University, University of Genoa, Université Paris-Saclay) under the Erasmus Mundus Master SERP-Chem. Then I went back to Pakistan and started as a Lecturer at NUST. After one and a half years, I got a fully funded Marie Curie double doctoral degree program at University of Oulu and Uppsala University. I stayed at MAX IV laboratory as a guest researcher during my doctoral studies and participated in several commissioning activities at FinEstBeAMS and VERITAS beamlines. In 2021, I completed my double doctoral degree program and was appointed as PostDoc Fellow in Daniel Rolles’s group at Kansas State University, US.   

I worked in two main scientific areas:

  • Study the fragmentation dynamics of the gas-phase molecules with coincidence spectroscopy.
  • Study nanoparticles and clusters with photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray absorption spectroscopy.”
