Dr. Abraiz Khattak is serving as assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Power Engineering of United States-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy (USPCAS-E), National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan. He did his PhD in Electrical Power Engineering with specialization in high voltage engineering from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Pakistan.  He received Masters in Electrical Power Engineering and Bachelors in Electrical Engineering degrees from University Engineering and Technology, Peshawar-Pakistan. 
Dr. Khattak started his career in 2010 as Lecturer/Labs In-charge in Peshawar college of Engineering-University of Engineering and Technology-Pakistan.  In September 2011 he joined City University of Science and IT, Peshawar-Pakistan remained at position of lecturer, assistant professor and also served as head of department of electrical engineering and postgraduate advisor of Electrical Engineering (Power Stream). Later on, he joined CECOS University of Information Technology and Emerging Sciences and taught different graduate subjects and supervised students in their MS theses. In April 2018, he joined National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan. Besides many years of teaching experience, Dr. Khattak is an active researcher in the field of high voltage engineering and power systems. He has developed several novel dielectrics and insulators for high voltage insulation. For the last several years he has been publishing in international peer reviewed journals and also authored a book on renewable energy systems.  He is serving as active reviewer, for several renowned international journals. 
He has been attending board of studies, board of faculties and selection boards for faculty in various universities and played important role in curriculum development for electrical power engineering at various universities.   
Dr. Khattak is approved PhD supervisor from Higher Education Commission (HEC) Pakistan and has supervised many students in their masters’ thesis. He is also currently supervising PhD and several MS students. For several students’ projects he received funding from national platforms. Currently, he is working on project of development of accelerated weathering standard and facility for Pakistan
