Mr Shovon Bhattacharjee

Medicine & Health
The Kirby Institute

Shovon Bhattacharjee is a Research Associate (research-focused academic staff) in the Biosecurity Program, The Kirby Institute, UNSW. His research focuses on identifying potential materials, new technologies, and strategies to inform the development of high-performing personal protective equipment (PPE). His research incorporates 2D- and nano-materials to develop multifunctional fabrics for various applications and next-generation PPE for controlling infectious disease outbreaks by bringing a materials-science lens to medicine. He works on aerosol dynamics, ventilators, and filters with the BREATHE Centre for Research Excellence investigators (a multidisciplinary team of epidemiology experts, materials scientists, mechanical engineers, and microbiologists). During his interdisciplinary (Medicine and Material Science) Ph.D. from UNSW Sydney, he published 10+ high-impact journal articles.

Shovon has research and working experience in both the university & industry. Before starting the journey at UNSW, he worked in an industry and a renowned govt university in Bangladesh as an Assistant Professor. In recognition of his brilliant academic performance, he achieved many awards.
