Dr Mohammad S Islam completed his PhD in Materials and Process Engineering from the University of Waikato, New Zealand. He held Research Fellow positions at the University of Sydney in Australia, at the University of Minho in Portugal, at CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering in Australia and Materials Scientist position in Pultron Composites, New Zealand. Dr Islam is an Associate Editor of Journal of Modern Polymer Chemistry and Materials. He is also editorial board member of three journals: Composite Materials of Science Publishing Group, Engineering: Current Trends and Advanced Materials Science and Engineering. He has also joined the Editorial Board of "Coatings" as a Topic Editor.

His research focuses on toughening of composite materials for cryogenic fuel tank applications, development of FRP prepreg materials, development of properties of composites manufactured using automated fibre placement method, development of fire-retardant materials and their applications, synthesis of nano-materials and their multifunctional applications, designing and developing materials testing methods,  fracture mechanics of materials and developing coating and lining materials for oil and gas infrastructures.
