Background

Dr. Mahmood Anwar is currently lecturer in the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Curtin University, Sarawak, Malaysia. Prior to join academic position, he was a Research Scientist in Hitachi CFP Pte. , Singapore and involved as a lead Scientist for High Voltage Component Research and corrosion protection projects. He has completed his PhD from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia specializing on surface modification of biomaterial (titanium alloy). He has obtained his MEng. (Mech) from same university majoring Thermo-Fluid and BSc. Eng.(Mech) from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET), Bangladesh. He has published more than 15 research papers up to date including Book chapter, Journals and International Conferences. He is also author of a book chapter published from Croatia regarding surface modification techniques of biomedical grade titanium alloy. He is holding one Malaysian patent which is under filing process. Currently, he is serving as a member in Committee for Standard Development on Nanotechnology, Advanced Ceramics and Metallic & Inorganic Coatings Division of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials). He is also serving as an Editorial Board member of American Journal of Materials Science and Engineering. He has been serving as a reviewer of several international IEEE conferences. He has been awarded the status of Associate ASEAN Engineer (AAE) by the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organizations (AFEO).
