Professional Information

Professor Muhammad J. A. Shiddiky is a Distinguished Professor in Nanotechnology at Charles Sturt University and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). His expertise includes analytical chemistry, biosensor technology, nanotechnology, and microfluidic devices, with a specialisation in developing biosensing methods and portable diagnostic devices for various biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications.

Before joining Charles Sturt University, he held positions as an Associate Professor and Senior Lecturer at Griffith University (2015-2023) and completed Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at UQ (2010-2012) and Monash University (2007-2010). He joined Monash University in September 2013 after obtaining his PhD degree from Pusan National University (South Korea).

Currently, Professor Shiddiky leads a research team focused on using cutting-edge biosensing and nanotechnology tools alongside advanced proteomics, genomics, and microbiology knowledge to develop fully integrated on-site/on-farm devices. These devices serve as novel platforms for achieving 'plug and play' and rapid analysis of various disease biomarkers for biomedical, agricultural, and environmental applications. The team also possesses great expertise in the fundamental electrochemistry of novel electroactive materials, the design, synthesis, and characterization of functional nanomaterials, including superparamagnetic ferric oxide nanozymes. They have developed several biosensing devices and methods based on these newly developed materials.

Professor Shiddiky’s research in biosensing technology has secured over $10 million in research funding since 2011, including seven Australian Research Council (ARC) projects as the lead CI or co-CI, two national prestigious fellowships (ARC DECRA Fellowship 2012-2014 and The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Career Development Fellowship 2015-2019), more than 10 internal grants from UQ and Griffith University, as well as several from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and industry funds. In 2019, he was awarded the Griffith University VC Award in recognition of his outstanding contributions to research. He has also been appointed as a member of the 2023 ARC College of Experts (2023-2025).

Professor Shiddiky has made significant contributions to high-quality scientific papers in top international refereed journals such as Analytical Chemistry, Nature Communications, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, Small, Chemical Communications, Lab Chip, Clinical Chemistry, and more. He is committed to innovative research and actively pursues patent applications to translate his research into practical applications, as evidenced by his multiple licensed patents.

He has also been appointed as a member of the 2023 ARC College of Experts (2023-2025). He serves as an Editorial Board member for several journals including Analytical Chemistry (ACS), Analyst (RSC), Scientific Reports (Springer Nature), and Analytical Sciences (Springer Nature). He has been an invited reviewer for over 30 internationally renowned journals in the field and reviews more than 50 articles per year. Over the past four years, he has reviewed over 600 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.

According to the 2023 Stanford ranking published by Ioannidis et al. (DOI: 10.17632/btchxktzyw.6), Prof Shiddiky belongs to the top 2% of all researchers across all disciplines and ranks 473rd worldwide in the subfield of Analytical Chemistry (out of 115,143 scientists), improving from 777th (out of 87,137) in 2020.
