Mohammed A. Basith received his B.Sc.(Hons.) in Physics 1997 (examination held in 1999) and M.Sc. in Physics in 1998 (examination held in 2001) from the Department of Physics, Shah Jalal University of Science & Technology, Sylhet, Bangladesh. He then acquired his M.Phil.  from the Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), Dhaka in 2005 in Physics in the field of Magnetism. Basith has achieved PhD degree from the Materials and Condensed Matter Physics group, University of Glasgow, UK in 2011. Dr. Basith started his career as a Lecturer in the Department of Physics, Faujdarhat Cadet College, Chittagong, Bangladesh in 2001. Then he worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Physics of Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology, Gazipur, Bangladesh from 2001-2005. In 2005, he joined as a Lecturer in the Department of Physics, Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), Dhaka . He joined as an Assistant Professor in the same department in 2011 and promoted to Associate Professor in 2015. He has been appointed as a Professor in the same department in December 2017.

Basith’s research interests include transmission electron microscopy(TEM)  characterization of patterned ferromagnetic nanostructures by lithographic techniques. At present in BUET he is working on preparation and characterization of multiferroic materials for energy related and spintronic applications. He is also conducting micromagnetic simulation of magnetic nanostructures by solving Landau Lifshitz Gilbert (LLG) equation with the aid of simulation package OOMMF.
