BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Md Firoz Khan is an environmental chemist and currently a senior lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, University of Malaya, Malaysia. He also held a Professor (Visiting) position at the China University of Mining and Technology, China. Dr. Khan received his Ph.D. degree from the Yokohama National University, Japan (Academic advisor: Professor Shigeki Masunaga) in 2010 as a Monbukagakusho scholar (Japanese Government Scholarship). He received his M.Sc. degree in Air Pollution from the University of Birmingham, UK and his bachelor degree in Chemistry from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2005 and 1994, respectively. He also received an M.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 1995. After his doctoral degree, Dr. Khan conducted his post-doctoral research at the University of Tokyo, Japan from 2010-2011. Then, he joined the Centre for Tropical Climate Change System at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, as a senior lecturer and attained the position till November 2018. He has been serving as an Associate Editor to two ISI indexed journals, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene since 2016, Impact Factor 4.212 (Q1), Arabian Journal of Geosciences (Springer, IF: 1.327, Q4) and Review Editor to Climate Change and Cities for Frontiers in Sustainable Cities. He also served as a member of the Working Group of Air Quality and Haze Episodes for Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) Local & Trans-boundary Haze Study in 2016. His research interests cover a wide variety of topics in air pollution. He supervises students at the undergraduate, postgraduate and Ph.D. level.  He also encourages the potential and outstanding students and postdoc to join in his group.
