Thamina Acter obtained Ph.D degree in Chemistry from Environmental Energy Mass Spectrometry Lab, Kyungpook National University, Daegu, South Korea in 2017. Thamina’s PhD and postdoc research works was on analysis of petroleum compounds with high resolution mass spectrometry facilities, developing analytical tools and applying them to study heteroatom compounds in petroleum. Subsequently, her research has applied these principles in studies of different crude oils and hydro treated oils. Her Master’s thesis work was based on the removal of heavy metals from contaminated ground water using low cost adsorbents.
Thamina joined as Assistant Professor of Chemistry in Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, East West University in September, 2019. Thamina is an analytical and environmental chemist. Her research interests include application of instrumental approaches like High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HR-MS), Liquid Chromatography coupled to Mass Spectrometry (LC-MS), Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS), Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) etc; characterization of petroleum compounds in spilled-oil/bio-oil/treated-oil/refined oil; behavior of pollutants like heavy metals in the environment (i.e., soil, plants, sediments and water); Evaluation of the impact of pollutants on ecosystems as well as for human health; remediation of pollutants from contaminated ground or surface water; fundamentally focus on understanding behavior of potentially harmful elements and compounds in urban and rural environments in both terrestrial and aquatic systems.
Thamina published 9 research articles including one review article in high impact factor peer-reviewed international journals. Her H-index is 5.
September 2019-Present, Assistant Professor, Department of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS), East West University, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
