Associate Professor
Dr. Muhammad Zaeem ul Haq Bhatti
Dr. Muhammad Zaeem Ul Haq Bhatti (M. Z. Bhatti) is a Pakistani Mathematician and HEC-approved PhD Supervisor specializing in Geometry, Relativity, and Cosmology. He started his career by joining the University of the Punjab, Lahore as a Lecturer in 2014. Then he served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics, PU after completing his PhD in 2015. Currently, he is serving as an Associate Professor in the same Department since May 2022. According to the Directory of PSP 2017 released in 2018, “Pakistan Council for Science and Technology” has announced Dr. Zaeem as the thirteenth most productive young scientist in Pakistan (
According to Science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators based on the dataset released by Scopus and Mendeley & by Stanford University, Dr. Zaeem has been ranked among the top 2% of scientists from all over the world in various disciplines for three years i.e., 2021, 2022 and 2023.
He worked as the Coordinator of M.Sc. Program at the Department of Mathematics, University of the Punjab during 2016-19. Now, he is working as the Coordinator of the BS(ADP) Program at the Department of Mathematics. He has been receiving more than 90% of student evaluations from the departmental students conducted each year by the Quality Enhancement Cell of the University. He attended and presented research papers at various National and International Conferences. He is a member of different societies and groups like the Pakistan Physical Society and The Group of Gravitation and Cosmology ( He has published around 190 research papers in various well-reputed Impact Factor International Journals including Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, Classical and Quantum Gravity, Physical Review D, Annals of Physics, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Physics of the Dark Universe, The European Physical Journal C, The European Physical Journal Plus, Astroparticle Physics, Astrophysics and Space Science, General Relativity and Gravitation, Physics Letters A, International Journal of Modern Physics D, The European Physical Journal A, etc. which have been cited more than 4700 times by various National and International Researchers. The cumulative impact factor of his research articles is about 600, according to the 2022 Journal Citation Reports released by Thomson Reuters in 2023.  The h-index of his scientific research papers according to Google Scholar is 36 and the i10-index is 134. He is a reviewer of various impact factor well-reputed international journals and works on the editorial board of various international journals as well. He has been selected in Category A for the Research Productivity Award in 2015 by “The Pakistan Council of Science and Technology” and has been regularly awarded Research Incentive Awards and Performance Evaluation Awards from the University of the Punjab and PCST. He has obtained different research projects as a Principal Investigator from the University of the Punjab and Higher Education Commission, Pakistan. He has completed two NRPU research projects as Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator funded by HEC. Due to his significant research, his name is among the top young researchers in Pakistan in the field of Mathematics. Dr. Zaeem is also involved in supervising M.Phil./Ph.D. students in the fields of geometry, relativity, and cosmology. He has mentored 01 Ph.D. and 21 M.Phil. scholars and has been supervising 3 M.Phil. and 5 Ph.D. students. Dr. Zaeem has also been involved in organizing various seminars and National and International Conferences on Gravitation and Cosmology at the University of the Punjab.
Initially, Dr. Zaeem worked on the solutions of non-linear partial differential equations and the study of inhomogeneous matter distribution of the Universe due to different fields, in particular, electromagnetic fields. He also studied the cosmos' dynamical instability issue and cavity formation with self-gravitating objects. Currently, he is investigating the alternatives to black holes and their stability problem with mathematical modeling in the background of different gravitational theories.
