 In 2011, having begun my research through the competitive two-year postgraduate research funding (£9.7k) at the University of Ulsan (S. Korea), I first devised my idea for entirely new types of MRI-compatible implantable device while an MSc student. In 2013, this research paper on MRI interactions with biomedical implants featured in the exclusive in brief (top five) section of the IET Electronics Letters. Having awarded the prestigious Brain Korea (BK 21) doctoral fellowship (£34.6k) in 2013, I had the idea of developing an implantable system that can simultaneously communicate and receive power wirelessly, thus enabling completely wireless biomedical devices. This research was published in IEEE and attracted research groups from the MIT media lab and IETR. This work received the best paper award from the Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering & Science (KIEES) and was also featured news in Korea's top search engine and online newspaper (Naver) and University of Ulsan news (U-news). I was also awarded AF-1 (100% tuition) by the University of Ulsan (2011-2016) during my MSc and Ph.D. In 2017, I was appointed as a Brain Korea (BK 21) plus post-doctoral research fellow (£51k) for two years at the University of Ulsan and Hanyang University and during that period, I was involved with Intromedic to study the wireless power transfer (WPT) capability for Mirocam endoscopic capsule and was the technical advisor of a start-up company EM2R. In 2019, my work on metamaterial-based WPT has been published in one of IEEE’s highest-ranking journals. Academically, my career has involved securing more than £100k of funding as a principal investigator, publishing seven peer-reviewed papers (first author) in internationally renowned journals (among them, five are IEEE transactions), nine peer-reviewed conference papers (first author) and giving two invited talks at both national and international conferences. In April 2019, I joined the Microelectronics Lab (meLAB) led by Dr Hadi Heidari, at the UGLA, where, I am working towards €8.4M EU H2020 FET Proactive “Hybrid Enhanced Regenerative Medicine Systems (HERMES) project. My current focus is developing the next generation of Biointegrated Implantable Brain Devices for neurological disorder treatments. I am currently a mentor and co-supervisor of four master’s students and one Ph.D. student at the UGLA. As a representative of the Bangladeshi Community (2013-2016) in S. Korea, I was publicly engaged with new students and involved in outreach activities. I volunteered an undergraduate capstone project which led the small research grant on “Cellphone case development to reduce electromagnetic radiation” by Centre for Women in Science, Engineering, and Technology in 2013. In the UK, I am an active participant and team leader of the European Researcher’s Night: Explorathon 2019, one of Europe’s biggest research-fuelled festival to showcase the work I am currently doing for brain diseases. I am a Reviewer of Several IEEE Journals,  Journal of Applied physics and Bioelectromagnetic (Publons).
