Dr. Tausif is a Lecturer in Fibre & Yarn Spinning Technology and Programme Leader for MSc Textiles.
Research Interests: Fibre spinning, yarn manufacturing, structure-property modelling of fibrous assemblies, development of sustainable and eco-friendly textile structures and textile reinforced composites.
Dr. Tausif completed his PhD at School of design, the University of Leeds UK in the characterisation of complex fibrous assemblies. Prior to that, he completed B.Sc Textile Engineering (with specialisation in Yarn Manufacturing) from National Textile University, Pakistan. Before joining the University of Leeds, he served as a faculty member at one of Pakistan’s premier engineering university.
His main areas of research interests are various aspects of textile science and technology including fibre spinning, yarn manufacturing, structure-property modelling of fibrous assemblies, development of sustainable and eco-friendly textile structures and textile reinforced composites.
