The work responsibility includes Beximco Sustainability Initiatives and Projects, and Head of Operations of Beximco Health and PPE.

As the CSO closely working with Beximco Top Management and Admin, Company HR and Compliance, Engineering, Utility and Maintenance Units, Supply Chain, Marketing and Merchandising, Power Generation, Chemical Storage and Waste Management teams on industrial and environmental sustainability issues.

As a part of Beximco Health and PPE, heading product development, production, quality control, commercial, marketing and merchandising related issues.

This technical advisory work supports different work group under the headquarters of WHO, such as:

  • WHO TAG on PPE team
  • WHO Prequalification of PPE, MDs and IVDs team, and
  • WHO Local Production and Technology Transfer of PPE, MDs and IVDs team, to develop prequalification requirements and technological assessment of PPE items and manufacturers.

This work supports national health authorities in Bangladesh to develop a national quality control system for priority PPE items, which will inform procurement decisions by government and other agencies (DGDA, WHO, USAid, and JICA) through the identification of local solutions for testing PPE according to internationally accepted standards, outlined by WHO in the disease commodity package for COVID-19.

Nov’13 – Mar’18: Assistant Professor, Dept of Chemical Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET)

Oct’16 – Jan’17: Visiting Research Scholar, Texas A&M University, USA

Jun – July’15: Visiting Professor, McGill University, Canada

This work encompassed Theoretical and Experimental research. The Experimental research work aimed developing Antibody active paper and cellulose beads to detect and filter bacteriophage ‘T7’. The Theoretical research work aimed to perform molecular modelling of building blocks of Picloram antibody, 3D Homology modelling of Antibody Binding Fragments, and Quantum Calculation of Antibody-Antigen Interaction Energies at different physiological conditions.

This project developed bioactive enzymatic papers and low-cost paper diagnostics for blood typing. Main focuses of the project were to deliver enzymes and proteins in a controlled pattern on paper, to investigate activity, stability, selectivity, aging, fixation and retention of enzymes on paper.

Course Taught:

  • CHE2165 (Bio-nano Engineering), MEC2404 (Fluids Mechanics)
  • CHE3161 (Chemistry and Chemical Thermodynamics)
  • CHE3164 (Reaction Engineering)
  • CHE4180 (Chemical Engineering Project)
  • CHE4163 (Transport Phenomena and Numerical Methods)

Work independently to design the ‘Effluent Treatment Plant, ETP’ and to develop the ‘Waste Management Plan’ for Renata Limited, a prominent pharmaceutical industry in Bangladesh (

Key Responsibilities:

  • Identifying and measuring water pollution in the Turaag River.
  • Helping industries to establish and troubleshoot Effluent Treatment Plants;
  • Report Writing; Scientific Publication;
  • Presenting Research works to the Industry and Local community.
  • Safety and Lab Manager: Chemistry Lab (2007-08) and Humidity Controlled Lab (2008-09), APPI, Monash University.
  • Member of Safety Committee, Dept of Chem Eng, Monash University.
  • Demonstrate different lab experiments.
  • Marking reports.
  • Maintain lab equipment.
