Dr. Md. Arifuzzaman has graduated from Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (former BIT, Khulna), Bangladesh in 2010 and started working as a lecturer in the same institution. He has earned his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree from the same institution in 2012 and also got promoted to Assistant Professor in recognition of his teaching and research excellence. Dr. Arifuzzaman has completed his PhD in 2017 from University of Newcastle, Australia titled “Fundamentals and Applications of Perlite Sodium Silicate Composites”. He has got several scholarships and awards during his undergraduate and postgraduate study including Prime Minister’s Gold Medal from Government of People’s Republic Bangladesh, Newcastle University Postgraduate Research Scholarship (NUIPRS), University of Newcastle Postgraduate Research Scholarship Central (UNRSC50:50), and Postgraduate Research Award 2015 for Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment at the University of Newcastle, Australia. He authored seven journal papers in reputed journals and attended four conferences in different countries to share his research findings with the community. Dr. Arifuzzaman is currently working as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET), Bangladesh. He is also working as a Testing Officer at CRTS (Consultancy, Research and Testing Services) of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, KUET. He is a member of Institution of Engineers (IEB), Bangladesh and Australian Fracture Group, Australia. His research interest is Composite Materials Manufacturing and Characterization. His main concern is on the manufacturing and properties of composites made of a mineral called “Perlite”.
