Thank you for visiting my personal website.

I am Mostafa Moonir Shawrav, originally from Bangladesh, currently working as a Post-doctoral Researcher in an European Research Council (ERC) funded project at Institute of Sensor and Actuator System (ISAS), Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Austria. During my first post-doc, I worked at the Institute of Solid State Electronics (FKE), TU Wien. During my PhD, I worked in a Marie Curie Initial Training Network Project (ENHANCE) and Austrian Science Funded Project (CRYSPEC2) at the same university. Earlier, I worked as the Research Assistant at ICTEAM,Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium. Prior to that, I completed M.Sc. in Nanotechnology from university of Twente, The Netherlands. I finished my master thesis at NanoElectronics group of MESA+ - Institute for Nanotechnology. I completed my B.Sc. in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB).
