Sadia Manzoor graduated in Chemical Sciences at the Institute of Chemical Sciences, University of Peshawar, Pakistan in 2009. She completed her doctoral thesis at the Faculty of Chemical Sciences, Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2017 under the direction of Prof. Jorge Omar Cáceres. Her thesis was based on the application of laser-induced plasma spectroscopy and metric chemo methods for the analysis of biological samples. She spend a postdoctoral stay at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics of the Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia.
She is currently part of the team at UMALASERLAB and is associated with a research project, “Advanced laser photonics for the inspection of materials with extreme resolution in the spatial, temporal and mass domains.” Her research focuses on the design, development and evaluation of Experimentation in laser-induced plasma optics spectroscopy (LIBS) and in zone-test microscopy with ultrashort lasers.
During her scientific career, she has published 20 articles in international journals and has participated in national and international conferences presenting 19 communications such as posters and oral presentations. She has participated in the organization of summer courses and also as a reviewer of scientific articles for international journals such as Spectrochimica Acta Part A: Molecular and Biomolecular Spectroscopy, Measurement, Journal of the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO), Journal of Chemistry, Hindawi , Phytochemical Analysis Journal, Journal of Herbal Medicine and Applied Spectroscopy.
