Md Al Amin (md.alamin [at]

M.S. North Carolina A&T State University, 2020

M.S. Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, 2011

B.S. Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, 2009

I completed my B.S. (2009) and M.S. (2011) in chemistry from the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in Sylhet, Bangladesh. I worked as a Quality Control Chemist for three more years in the pharmaceutical industry. I also worked as a Lecturer in Chemistry at a community college. I moved to North Carolina, USA, to pursue my M.S. in Nanoengineering from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (2020). During my free time, I like to read and listen to music. My research is focused on catalysis using plasmonic nanostructures and electrochemistry.
