Nanoarchitecturing, metal-organic frameworks, sensing, ectrochemical

Her fields of research are nanotechnology and electrochemistry. Currently, she is working on metal-organic frameworks for sensing and electrochemical energy storage systems applications. Her main focus is designing materials with controlled structural parameters (size, shape, and porosity) to optimize their functional performance toward energy storage, energy conversion, and sensing applications. In particular, her research concentrates on the rational design and construction of metal-organic frameworks, the novel self-assembly of inorganic 1D nanomaterials into 2D sheet-like structures, and further approaches for energy storage and conversion, and sensing applications. 

Silvia Chowdhury is a PhD student at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering & Nanotechnology (AIBN), The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. She obtained her Master of Science in Mechatronics Engineering (By Research) from International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). She was awarded her Bachelor of Science in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE) from American International University- Bangladesh (AIUB). Throughout her academic years, she has published 11 papers, and nine proceedings. She received one award (Silver medal) from Kulliyyah of Engineering Research & Innovation Exhibition (KERIE). Three of her research articles have been published in prestigious and high-impact journals, namely Biomaterials  (IF 12.47), Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology (IF 6.25), and Peptides (IF 3.75).
