I am an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Materials Science and
NanoEngineering at Rice University, USA. I completed my Ph.D. from Cornell University,
USA, and B.Sc. from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET),

My primary academic interest lies in interdisciplinary research that integrates materials,
design, and manufacturing. The overarching goal of my research is to design and
develop futuristic multifunctional composite and nanocomposite structures for various
structural and functional applications with an emphasis on advanced manufacturing,
sustainable materials, and nature-inspired design. Central to my approach is leveraging
the nanoscale features of materials to devise macroscale structures with optimized
architectures through a fundamental understanding of the process-structure-property

I hope you enjoy my website and find information here. Anyone who is interested or
influenced to make science their way of life, please feel free to contact me. I value
creativity, honesty, comprehensiveness, and persistence in every person with whom I

All the best,
