Dr Muhammad J. A. Shiddiky
Dr Shiddiky is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Environment and Science (ESC) at Griffith University and a member of Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre (QMNC). He was an Australian National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Career Development Fellow from 2015 to 2019. He received his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Pusan National University (S. Korea) under Professor Yoon-Bo Shim, and undertook a three-year long postdoctoral training in the School of Chemistry at Monash University with Professor Alan Bond.
Prior to joining Griffith, Dr Shiddiky was an UQ Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2010-2012), an Associate Group Leader (2014-2015), and an ARC DECRA Fellow (2013-2015) in the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) at The University of Queensland (UQ).
The primary goal of his research is to develop novel microfluidics, electrochemistry, and nanomaterials based effective molecular diagnostics technologies and point-of-care devices for early detection and management of cancer and maternal health diseases.
He is also working on the development of simple and inexpensive technologies, such as sensors and ‘on-farm’ devices for the detection and management of plant and crops diseases.
