Dr. Kamrul Hassan is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials, University of Adelaide, Australia and leads the sensor nodes in Losic Group. He works with DSTG (Defence, Science and Technology Group) Australia and leads the wearable sensor development projects for National Intelligence and Security Discovery Research, Australia.

The joint recipient of a BK 21+ (Brain of Korea) Best Young Researcher Award in 2016 and an Australian Postgraduate Award in 2017, Kamrul Hassan has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical & Electronics Engineering and holds an M.Sc in Electrical Engineering from University of Ulsan, South Korea. In 2021, he was conferred his PhD degree on “Development of New Generation Chemoresistive VOC/Gas Sensors for Real-Field Applications” from the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Adelaide, Australia. Dr Kamrul was awarded the Doctoral Research Medal as well as Deans commendation for outstanding research at PhD level in the University of Adelaide. He was also selected as ‘Mace Bearer’ for an outstanding PhD student in 2022. He has co-authored in 42 scientific journal papers, 3 patents, 1 book chapters, >15 conference presentations in the area of sensor developments, including graphene and other nanomaterials, which generated ~1100 citations with an h-index of 20. He is an Editorial Board Member of ‘Sensors’ Journal.

Dr. Kamrul’s current research interests to understand underlying fundamental phenomena to engineer nanomaterials for printed electronics, sensing and energy, which will be applicable in IoT.


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.
