B.S. (Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering), University of Dhaka, 2012
I grew up in Jhenaidah, Bangladesh. After finishing my high school there, I attended the University of Dhaka for my undergraduate studies. I obtained my B.S. in Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in 2012. I worked as a graduate assistant in the Morin Group in the Chemistry Department at University of Nebraska-Lincoln for one year starting in Summer 2013. I started working toward my Ph.D. in physical chemistry at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville from Fall 2014.
During my undergraduate studies, I grew interests for materials science and physical chemistry which ultimately motivated me to join Dr. Larese’s research group. My research interests are lying in understanding and studying the thermodynamics and molecular structural change at phase boundaries during adsorption on solid surfaces and ultimately being able to engineer materials using the knowledge on the properties and behavior of the materials.
