Since 1971, Dr. Quazi has been providing technology and management leadership to programs funded by US federal, state, and city governments and by energy, chemicals, and utility companies worldwide. His experience also covers R&D and technology testing and commercialization and has led multidisciplinary teams to discover innovative solutions to challenging technologies issues. He engineered/managed technology development and testing projects for or on behalf of GE Gas Turbine Div., GE Research & Development Div., GE Plastics, Columbia Gas, Proctor & Gamble, Arco, Heat Transfer Research Institute, US Department of Energy, American Gas Association, and the US Department of Defense. One of his designs was selected by the program sponsors (GE/US DOE) as a success story and the test facility designed by Dr. Quazi was featured on the cover page in the Power Engineering journal.
For over 20 years, Dr Quazi has served as CEO, President, and Technical Director of MARTECH International Inc., a US Technology Company developing innovative and optimized solutions for clients with unique and complex challenges. He was the VicePresident – Operations for the US operation of a European technology company, Kinetics Technology International, Inc. Dr. Quazi has provided technical and managerial leadership for programs funded by The World Bank, The United Nations, the Asian Development Bank, US Department of Homeland Security, and US Department of Defense. His projects were in the US, Argentina, Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, China, Egypt, El Salvador, France, Germany, India, Japan, Kuwait, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Venezuela, and the United Kingdom. He developed, managed and conducted (jointly with others) engineering, technology, and management training programs for over 300 project engineers, project managers, department managers, program managers, and directors in Europe, Middle East, Asia, Latin America, and the US.
From 2010 to 2016, Dr. Quazi was Technical Director of the US Navy's Nanotechnology Assessment and Analysis Program Support. From 2013 to 2016, he served as Director of the AIChE Nanoscience and Engineering Forum and also served as Director of the AIChE's Fuels and Petrochemicals Division.
