I have been an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the Utah State University (USU) since Fall 2020. My research interests lie in materials with application under extreme environments, e.g., thermal mechanical extremes, radiation extremes, chemical extremes.

Abdullah obtained his B.S. from the Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology. Abdullah also worked as a quality control and asssurance engineer Midas Safety Inc. Abdullah's current research interests are advanced materials, solid mechanics, energy system

Arjun obtained his B.S. and MS in Physics from the Pondicherry University, Puducherry (India). The research activities of Arjun mainly related to condensed matter Physics (CMP), wherein especially the first principle analysis (DFT) and experimental methodologies on materials under extreme circumstances. The research interests are further extended to 2-D thin films and spintronics. Arjun had also worked as an intern in the field of 2D thin films at the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST), Trivandrum (India). His Master's specialization is in CMP, and thesis is entitled "Synthesis and characterization of Strontium doped Copper ferrite nanoparticles - DFT & experimental analysis".
