Bnar Ahmed is a lecturer in the faculty of science and health at Koya University where she has been a faculty member since 2008.
She gained a B.Sc. degree in chemistry from Baghdad University in 2003, an M.Sc. degree in the chemistry of polymer from Baghdad University in 2007, and a Ph.D. degree in nanomaterials from Durham University in 2016. Since 2019, she is heading the pedagogy and academic development centre at Koya University, and currently working as a research grant manager for Ulster University.
Her research interest is nanoscience and nanotechnology, particularly the chemistry of graphene and carbon nanotubes. My work in this area involves the synthesis and chemistry of graphene, carbon nanotubes, and carbon quantum dots for medical applications.
