Kazi Alam received a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Bangladesh, followed by a nonthesis-based Master of Science (MSc) degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A & M University, USA. He obtained a second Master of Science (MSc) degree (thesis-based) in Physics from the University of Texas at Arlington, USA. His MSc program in Physics involved research activities towards computational and theoretical simulations on many-body quantum systems using Density Functional Theory (DFT). He received a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in experimental nanoelectronics from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Alberta, Canada under the supervision of Dr. Sandipan Pramanik. His PhD thesis was on experimental organic nanospintronics. He commenced his postdoctoral research activity under the supervision of Dr. Karthik Shankar from July 2017 in the area of semiconductor and plasmonic nanomaterials for artificial photosynthesis. He worked as a research fellow at NRC-NINT under the joint supervision of Dr. Sergey Gusarov and Dr. Karthik Shankar from 2019-2021. His postdoctoral research activities involved synthesis of a wide range of nanomaterials and nanocomposites, extensive characterization of nanosystems and solar energy conversion applications of fabricated nanomaterials & devices. Additionally, he enthusiastically engaged himself in DFT-based modelling to unravel fundamental and relevant scientific aspects, complementary to the experimentally observed phenomena. Presently he is working as a Research Associate under the supervision of Dr. Karthik Shankar. His current research activities include novel inorganic and organic nanosystems for potential applications in various areas of solar energy harvesting arena, such as photocatalysis, sensing and photovoltaics.
