Personal profile

Professional Information

Dr. Shiddiky is a Distinguished Professor of Nanotechnology at the Rural Health Research Institute (RHRI) at Charles Sturt University, New South Wales, Australia. His expertise and research interests are in the fields of analytical chemistry, sensor technology, and nanobiotechnology. He specializes in advancing the understanding of micro- and nanofluidics, nanobiotechnology, microbiology, electroanalytical chemistry, and surface chemistry-based phenomena and processes for developing new biosensing methods and point-of-care/on-site devices for biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications.

Professor Shiddiky completed his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (B.Sc., Class I) in 1998 and Masters of Science in Physical Chemistry (M.Sc.) in Bangladesh in 1999. After that, he moved to Busan, South Korea where he pursued a Doctorate in Analytical Chemistry (Ph.D.) and graduated in 2007. His doctoral thesis was on the topics of electric field-induced fluid manipulation phenomenon in micro-fabricated devices and electrochemical readout.  During his doctoral studies, Professor Shiddiky was awarded multiple awards, including a University Gold Medal.

In 2007, Professor Shiddiky commenced his first postdoctoral research at Monash Electrochemistry Group (School of Chemistry, Monash University) with former ARC Federation Fellow Professor Alan M. Bond. Their research focused on studying electrode/solution interfaces using Fourier-Transformed Alternating Current Voltammetry . In 2010, he won an UQ Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Queensland and commenced his second postdoctoral position at the  Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN). It was here that he developed the alternating current electrohydrodynamics (ac-EHD)-induced fluid manipulation phenomenon later known as “nanoshearing technology”.  At UQ, Professor Shiddiky won two highly competitive and prestigious fellowships – an ARC DECRA in 2012 and NHMRC CDF in 2014. 

In October 2015, Professor Shiddiky transferred his NHMRC CDF to Griffith University after accepting an offer for a continuing academic position as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Environment and Science (ESC). He was promoted to Associate Professor in 2021. In June 2023, he accepted the inaugural Distinguished Professor in Nanotechnology position at Charles Sturt University under the university's distinguished professor scheme. 

Professor Shiddiky is the author or co-author on over 180 international peer-reviewed publications (e.g., Nature Communications, Chemical Society Reviews, JACS, ACS Nano, Advanced Materials), reviews and book chapters on various aspects of bio-sensing and molecular diagnostics device development. His  refereed journal articles have been cited more than 8,500+ times (Google Scholar = GS, on June 10, 2023), resulting in an h-index of 57 (five- year h-index is 44). He has 23 research articles with more than 100 citations. He has attracted 6,600+ citations (more than 78% of his total) in the last 5 years (GS). The average citation of his journal articles is 47+ cites/article. According to the 2022 Stanford’s ranking published by Ioannidis et al. (DOI: 10.17632/btchxktzyw.4), which aims to control for confounded citation rate including over-self-citation and discipline-specific citation behaviour, Professor Shiddiky belongs to the top 2% of all researchers across all disciplines and rank 81937th worldwide (106,839th was in 2020) and 478th in the subfield of analytical chemistry. 

Professor Shiddiky is part of many professional societies and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). He has been awarded multiple prizes, including the Griffith University VC Award for his outstanding research contributions in the field. 

Currently, Professor Shiddiky is serving as an Australian Research Council (ARC) College of Expert for the term 2023-2025. He is also a member of the editorial board for several journals including Analytical Chemistry (Publisher: ACS), Analyst (Publisher: RSC), Scientific Reports (Publisher: Springer Nature), Analytical Sciences (Publisher: Springer Nature), and Micro (MDPI). He has been invited to review for over 30 internationally renowned journals in the field and reviews more than 50 articles per year. Over the past three years, he has reviewed over 550 articles with 165 of them being from 2022 (Ref: Web of Science). Professor Shiddiky is also a regular reviewer for numerous national and international research grants, such as NHMRC, ARC (DP, DECRA, LP and FT schemes), Czech Science Foundation, Royal Society of New Zealand and Cancer Research UK.
