Biography

Monower currently working as Reader in Construction Materials in Department of Civil Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University.

Research Interests:
Cement and Concrete Technology, Refractory ceramics, Pavement Engineering and Materials, Asset Management of Asphalt Pavement, Low Carbon Cement and Concrete Development, Asphalt Materials and Analytical Analysis of Construction Materials using SEM, XRD, EDXRF, FT-IR and TGA.
Currently Monower is supervising 4 (four) PhD research projects at LJMU on Clay based aggregate, Geopolymer technology, Polymer Modified Asphalt, Polymer Modified concrete and Refractory ceramics.

Monower obtained his first degree in Civil Engineering at Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET), Bangladesh. He joined in Bangladesh Civil Service and appointed as Assistant Engineer of Bangladesh Roads and Highways Department, RHD (www.rhd.gov.bd) under Ministry of Communication in 1999. During his employment with RHD, Monower was involved with various Pre-stress Concrete Girder Bridges and National and Regional Highways construction projects in Bangladesh.

In 2009, Monower obtained MSc in Road Management and Engineering from University of Birmingham with Distinction.

Monower obtained PhD in 2012 from LJMU and his thesis was entitled as “Development of Low Carbon Cement from waste bio-mass fly ash”. On completion of his PhD Monower took up an EPSRC Research Fellow position in Coventry University and worked till January 2013. Then Joined in LJMU as Research Fellow in a project funded by the National Joint Utilities Group. After successful completion of the project Monower was appointed as Lecturer in University of Bolton during April 2016 –March 2017.

Monower has been appointed to serve as an academic adviser on the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) in the UK selection committee for 2020-2023
Monower also registered Mentor for ICE Mentor-supported training scheme.

Monower awarded Early Career Researcher Award for Impact 2018 for delivering innovative and impactful research.

Monower is a registered member of Engineering Council UK as Chartered Civil Engineer (CEng);
Member of Institute of Civil Engineers (MICE);
Member of Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (MCIHT);
Fellow of the Higher Edication Academy (FHEA);
Monower also published technical papers in various peer reviewed International Journals and Conferences.
