He also held a Professor (Visiting) position at the China University of Mining and Technology, China. Dr. Khan received his Ph.D. degree from the Yokohama National University, Japan (Advisor: Emeritus Professor Shigeki Masunaga) in 2010 as a Monbukagakusho scholar (Japanese Government Scholarship). He received his M.Sc. degree in Air Pollution from the University of Birmingham, UK and his bachelor degree in Chemistry from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2005 and 1994, respectively. He also received an M.Sc. degree in Chemistry from the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 1995. After his doctoral degree, Dr. Khan conducted his postdoctoral research in aerosol science at the University of Tokyo, Japan during 2010-2011. He also held a senior lecturer position in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. He serves as an Associate Editor to Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene (Impact Factor 6.053, California University Press), and Arabian Journal of Geosciences (Springer, Impact Factor: 1.827).

Dr. Khan is a lead lecturer and developer of a micro-credential online course with a title of Chemometrics in Air Pollution under Future Learn Website. He evaluates research grants from SWISS National Science Foundation (SNSF) and Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF). He reviews regularly invitation received from top tiering journals including PNAS. Under his supervision (main as well as co-supervision) around 30 research students have received undergrad, postgrad and Ph.D. degrees within the field of air pollution-health interaction.

He is an author or co-author of >110 peer-reviewed research articles published in many top tiering journals including ACP, RSE, JGR, ACS-Earth and Space Chemistry, STOTEN, Chemosphere, Atmospheric Environment, Atmospheric Research, Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety, Exposure and Health, Environmental Geochemistry and Health, Environmental Research Letters, etc. He engages with >20 research grants as a PI or CoPI awarded from national and international funding bodies in the direction of environmental research.
