Prof. Khalida M. Khan presented a postdoc thematic model on ‘Sub-soil Hydro-Toxicology’ during the UN-WSDPD, which states that:

“Hazardous toxification occurrences of under-ground water reserves due to the prevailing sewage-drainage practice, which essentially and evidently poses an undue and disproportionate burden on the surface and sub-surface soil and eventually leads the toxins to leach down to the water table”. “This unfair burdening of sewage-paths has increasingly, henceforth, became a serious danger and menace for the water reserves. The ongoing dingiest peril has proved to be the ‘grimmest threat’ to the human life upon earth, biosafety and the ecological sustainability in its totality”, alarmingly warns further the research model of postdoctoral thematic enquiry.

In recognition of the convincing research model and its overwhelming significance, Dr. Khalida Khan was titled as thePostdoc Strategic Researcher of the Year’ 2018-2019 in Water Conservation’.

Professor Khalida M. Khan’s mentored postdoctoral research was directed and supervised under the cross-disciplinary Asian PI, Prof. Dr. Aurangzeb Al Hafi, who is responsible for initiating and formulating the conceptual baselines on the subject-matter of Sub-soil Hydro-Toxicology.
