She works on controlled synthesis through wet chemical approach of magnetic spinel ferrite nanoparticles for Imaging Diagnostics (MRI) and Therapeutics (Drug carriers, Hyperthermia); Bioactivity of Cu-based nanoparticles and Bimettallic nanostructures. She has an h-index of 30 for 80 indexed publications, with >2600 citations(Scopus).
Dr. Shah Mohd Ashraf after completing doctorial studies in Condensed Matter Physics, was appointed as Assistant Professor in National Institute of Technology Srinagar in year 1999. Here, Shah embarked upon new research programme, pioneered the synthesis of broad range of nanomaterials and established World Bank Funded Research Centre (Special Centre for Nanosciences) and laid the foundations to learn the new sciences-Nanotechnology in early twenties. In year 2009, shah moved to Middle East on deputation for a short period of two years and published book titled, "Principles of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology" with Dr. T. Ahmad, an eminent Chemist. Dr. Shah is teaching Nanotechnology, Materials Science and Materials Characterization from the last two decades and is actively engaged as reviewer /editor of many scientific journals. Shah has authored more than 75 international peer reviewed scientific papers in National and International journals and has written 5 Books on Nanotechnology and many Book Chapters with reputed international publishers. In his research, he has targeted bio-compatible and energy harvesting nano-materials, which has applications in day to day life. Shah has been awarded two major projects by the Govt of India under Nano-Mission and leadership qualities in taking lead role in innovative programmes have been acknowledged on many occasions. Shah has delivered invited talks in number of international forums. Dr. shah is also a member of many science academies and societies and his work has been cited by number of scientific reporters as well as scientific media. Organiser and Chair of several national and international symposia, schools and conferences which includes 3rd Int. Conference on "Nanotechnology for Better living" from 25-29 May 2016 in collaboration with IIT Kanpur. In his spare time, Dr. Shah is regularly organising INSPIRE internship programme launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India for the bright and genius students of the Kashmir Valley, which aims to attract talented students for the study of Science and Technology in early age which ultimately will bring peace across the globe.

Such biodegradable polyesters (PLA, PLGA, PCL) show faster degradation rate compared to the formulation proposed in the literature; other peculiar characteristics of the library are the synthetic process which avoids the use of organic solvents, a tunable degradation time as well as easy adjustable features as size, surface charge and PEGylation.
