Dr. Md. Mahiuddin
Associate Professor

Dr. Mahiuddin received BSc (Hon’s) in Chemistry and M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry from Rajshahi University, Bangladesh in 2008 and 2009, respectively. Later he completed his Ph.D. in Material Chemistry from Yamagata University, Japan under the Japanese Government Monbukagakushu scholarship. Dr. Mahiuddin published around 15 journal articles and attended conferences at home and abroad. His research involves the development of functional nanomaterials including metal and metal oxide nanoparticles, and their graphene-based nanocomposites using safe and abundant natural sources. He is now working as the Associate Professor of Chemistry Discipline at Khulna University, Bangladesh.
