Dr. Ferdous received his PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington. Before that, he worked for a bank in Bangladesh. Prior to that, he received his B.Sc. in mechanical engineering degree from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). He has joined in the Multiscale Mechanics and Physics Lab (MMPL) in fall 2010. The objective of his PhD research encompasses an understanding of the toughening mechanism of ceramic based materials with minimal impact to other mechanical properties. He also worked on biomaterials, polymer composites, MEMS, and composite materials. He is now working on advanced materials design and failure mechanics of nanomaterials. Before joining in the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, He worked as a visiting assistant professor in the Binghamton University-SUNY and as an adjunct faculty in the University of Texas at Arlington. He is a member of the ASME and ASC.
