Biography

Dr. Muhammed Shah Miran is an Associate Professor of the Department of Chemistry in the University of Dhaka. He is a young researcher fully dedicated to the innovation of physical science, especially on nanochemistry and chemistry of ionic liquids for more than fourteen years. For his outstanding academic achievements, he received prizes and honors in his academic career, in particular, Professor Ali Nawab Memorial Gold Medal-2002 from the Dhaka University for excellent achievements in MS examination. He has been awarded the MEXT Scholarship 2009 for pursuing his PhD research from the Japanese Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture, Japan. In addition, during his Ph.D. research in Japan he has acquainted himself very well with the most modern aspects of ionic liquid research and the application of ionic liquids on fuel cells and for nanotechnology. He has been bestowed the JASSO Follow-up Research Fellowship 2017 for 03 months in the period of July 01, 2017 to March 31, 2018. After his return from Japan, he has devoted himself in advanced research in Dhaka University. He already has 27 peer-reviewed articles (IF# 45.0; RG score# 20.40 and h-index 7), 01 book chapter (CRC press) and 39 conference abstracts including three Invited Lectures in his credit.
