He has received M.Sc. and M.Phil. degrees in physics at the department of physics Quaid-i-Azam University Islamabad, Pakistan in 2012 and 2014, respectively. He has concluded his Ph.D. thesis entitled: Novel applications of metamaterials and plasmonics to optical tweezing: directional scattering, chiral resolution and pulling forces in 2020. Rfaqat's research is related to light-matter interaction, directional scattering, optical manipulation of metamaterials including the plasmonics chiral materials in optical tweezers. He studies optical manipulation and chiral resolution of structurally chiral materials, optical momentum transfer in optical tweezers, effective medium theories, Kerker's conditions in metamaterials, Mie scattering theory and optical pulling forces. He also worked on wave packet dynamics in mono bi- layered graphene, in 2D lattice structures in the presence of a strong magnetic field at room temperature.
