Personal profile

Research interests

I am currently serving as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX. My academic journey began at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, where I completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Chemistry. I then moved to the United States to pursue a Ph.D. in Inorganic and Supramolecular Chemistry at the University of Southern Mississippi, under the guidance of Karl J. Wallace.

After completing my Ph.D. in 2021, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Southern Mississippi for a brief period before joining Stephen F. Austin State University in August 2022. My research interests lie in the design and synthesis of portable Chemosensors (fluorescent probes) for detecting biologically and environmentally important toxic analytes.

I have published several peer-reviewed journal articles and have been invited to speak at various conferences. I have also been fortunate to receive research funding, including a Research Creative Activity (RCA) grant and a DoD (Department of Defense) grant.

In addition to my research, I am passionate about teaching and have taught various courses including Inorganic Chemistry and Intro to Chemistry. I also serve on various departmental committees and enjoy mentoring students in my research laboratory. I am a member of the American Chemical Society and the Mississippi Academy of Science, and I have volunteered at various events such as the Mississippi Student Olympics and the Oak Grove Elementary Mole Day.
