Dr. Kamrul Hassan is a Lecturer/Research Fellow at the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Adelaide, Australia, where he spearheads the sensor nodes within the Losic Group. Collaborating with DSTG (Defence, Science, and Technology Group) Australia, he is at the forefront of leading pivotal wearable sensor development projects for the National Intelligence and Security Discovery Research (NISDRG).
A prolific scholar, Dr. Hassan was honored with the BK 21+ (Brain of Korea) Best Young Researcher Award in 2016, followed by the prestigious Australian Postgraduate Award in 2017. He is academically grounded with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical & Electronics Engineering and an M.Sc in Electrical Engineering from the University of Ulsan, South Korea. His academic prowess was further highlighted in 2021 when he earned his PhD from the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Adelaide, Australia, focusing on the “Development of New Generation Chemoresistive VOC/Gas Sensors for Real-Field Applications.” His exceptional research at the PhD level was recognized with both the Doctoral Research Medal and the Dean's commendation from the University of Adelaide. Furthermore, in 2022, his outstanding PhD achievements led to his selection as a ‘Mace Bearer,’ a prestigious recognition at the university.
Dr. Hassan's research footprint includes co-authoring 45 scientific journal papers, 2 patents, and 1 book chapter. He has made over 15 conference presentations in the realm of sensor development, particularly focusing on graphene and other nanomaterials. His scholarly contributions have garnered approximately 1500 citations, earning him an h-index of 21. He is also a respected Editorial Board Member of the 'Sensors' Journal.
Currently, Dr. Kamrul’s research is driven by a passion to unravel the fundamental phenomena that underpin nanomaterial engineering. His work is pivotal in advancing printed electronics, sensing technologies, and energy solutions, setting the stage for future breakthroughs in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain.


My research interest encompasses Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanotechnology, exploiting 0D, 1D and 2D nanomaterials for ubiquitous sensors and energy devices. I am also interested in computation-enabled smart devices, where algorithms are playing an increasingly important role in their performance and reliability. Exploiting the unique characteristics of various nanomaterials and synergies between them, supported by advanced learning algorithms is the theme of our ambitious multidisciplinary research, with a view towards real-world applications.
