Dr. Hira Zaheer

Assistant Professor

Dr. Hira Zaheer is currently working as Assistant Professor in School of Basic Sciences, Galgotias University. She is working here since October 2021has total experience of more than 5 years of teaching in private and central universities. She demonstrated a good wotk ethic and interpersonal skills. She strives for originality, works hard and does not lose focus on thegoals she sets.Being a passionate teacher, she believes that teaching is not merely restricted to making the students understand the underlying concepts of a course but also to develop critical thinking and evaluate alternate approaches for problem solving. Her goal in classroom is to have a lively, open, friendly, and educational environment. She has contributed in research by publishing research articles in SCI / Scopus indexed Journals, various conferences and book chapters in reputed books.
