Salik Hasan Aslam has been working as a Lecturer in the Department of Plant Biotechnology at ASAB since August 2014. His interests are focused on agricultural sustainability and the potential use of rhizobacteria as biofertilisers. His research centers on the use of phosphate solubilizing rhizobacteria to ensure efficient utilization of phosphorus by indigenous crop plants which might help reduce reliance on synthetic fertilisers, making agriculture more sustainable. 

He initially trained as a Microbiologist and then he went on to secure a Masters in Biotechnology with a focus on commercialization and business. Since joining the university, his interests have expanded to other areas like managing public relations with science communication and industry-academia linkages.
