Kamrul was born in a small town named Nikli, located at the middle part of Bangladesh. He completed his B.Sc (Hons) and M.Sc in Chemistry from the Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh in 2002. He conducted his masters research with Prof. Syed Safiullah on Environmental Chemistry specifically in the development of filter materials for the removal arsenic from ground water. After his masters, he worked at the Bangladesh Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) as a research fellow for one year. 2004, he joined as a Chemistry Lecturer at the Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET) of Bangladesh. After enjoying around three years of undergraduate teaching, he decided to undertake his Ph.D. studies and started his Ph.D. in 2007 at the Centre for Green Chemistry & Catalysis at Memorial University, Newfoundland under the supervision of Prof. Chris Kozak. During his Ph.D., he designed iron catalysts supported by amine-bis(phenol) ligands for the epoxidation of olefins and for C-C cross-coupling. Kamrul started his postdoctoral research in 2012 with Prof. Eli Zysman-Colman at University de Sherbrooke where he experienced the luminescent materials world of iridium and continuing his project with collaboration with Prof. Garry S. Hanan at University de Montreal. Kamrul them moved to Queen’s University in 2014 to work with Prof. Suning Wang on Luminescent organometallic platinum complexes. Kamrul began as Assistant professor of Organometallic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry under the college of Science of University of Sharjah in 2015. Here his research focuses on developing sustainable luminescent materials for device applications and Catalysis for organic synthesis. Aside from chemistry, he likes to spend his time watching cricket, playing badminton, reading novels and travelling with his family.
