Azad specialises in nanotechnology, bioengineering and electrochemistry

​Azad specialises in synthesis, characterization, and functionalization of mesoporous nanomaterials for biological application. His fields of research are nanotechnology, bioengineering and electrochemistry. In his PhD, Azad has been conducting research on the synthesis of Iron-Oxide based mesoporous magnetic nanomaterials for fabricating electrochemical biosensor device for early detection of cancer and infectious disease related biomarkers. 

​He was awarded first class in both B.Sc. (Honours) & MS in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, The University of Chittagong, Bangladesh. He had worked as a biochemist in a pharmaceutical company. Afterwards, He worked as a Research Assistant at University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In July 2020, He joined the Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), The University of Queensland as a PhD student in Professor Yusuke Yamauchi's group.
