Biography

Monower currently working as Senior Lecturer for Concrete and Material Technology and Highway Engineering in Department of Civil Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University.

Research Interests:
Cement and Concrete Technology, 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.

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.

Currently Monower is working as Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at LJMU.

Monower is a registered member of Engineering Council UK (as Chartered Civil Engineer, CEng) and Member of Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT).
Monower also published technical papers in various peer reviewed International Journals and Conferences.
