Dr. Khan reviewed and commended several policy papers, vision documents and power sector outlook reports by the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI)

Dr. Khan is the founding Dean & Director Projects at SCME, NUST and also the founding Dean/Principal USAID funded U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy at NUST. He enjoys the unique honor of being awarded the first patent on behalf of NUST. He was involved as researcher/consultant in a sizeable project on the production of synthetic fuel from Biomass on behalf of the US Department of Energy at the University of Arizona USA. The project had travelled from Rust Engineering in New York to Argonne labs in Illinois to UC Berkley. A major breakthrough enabled the project to recover from its long slumber and activated it to the point of commercial production. Invention is assigned to the University of Arizona. The work is reported in "The Nation Daily" Science and Technology section under the caption "Shortcut to Natural Production" and ISI Journals. Consequently, a 3000 bbl/day plant for liquid fuel production from biomass was reportedly installed in Albany New York. Two further improvements in machine design leading to lower energy outlay in reaction injection and planetary viscous processing were achieved as part of PhD at Imperial College London and Post Doc. work in Industry. He acted as Advisor on turn key projects across four continents. He is on HEC panel of experts for review of National R& D grants.
