Muhammad is pursuing his PhD studies, in the Tribology Group at Imperial College London, under the primary supervision of Prof. Daniele Dini. His current research aims to understand thin-films and interfaces.

Prior to joining Imperial with the Beit Fellowship for Scientific Research and Shell PhD Studentship,  Muhammad graduated with a Master of Science (Mech.Engg.) degree from University of Alberta (Canada). His MSc research at UAlberta's Interfacial Science and Surface Engineering Lab was concentrated on the investigation of droplet dynamics. Later, he worked on the efficacy of heterogeneous surface chemical treatment to passive heat transfer devices in Flynn research group at the same university. Muhammad earned his Bachelor of Science (Mech.Engg.) degree with honours from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
