He was the recipient of a CIFRE doctoral fellowship and under its framework, he worked in TAGSYS RFID, a French company. His Ph.D. research was dedicated to the fields of printed electronics, and acoustic sensor design, optimization and development. He received B.Sc. (Hons) in Physics from University of Chittagong (Bangladesh), and carried out his master degree in 'Joint European Masters in Materials Science (EMMS)', jointly offered by the University of Aveiro (Portugal), Hamburg University of Technology (Germany), and Aalborg University (Denmark).

Dr. Rubaiyet I. Haque, from February 2020 to March 2022, worked as a senior post-doctoral scientist in the 'Department of Mechanical Engineering' of the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). He was a Marie Curie fellow, and his research was focused on the design and development of ice lithography system, a micro- & nano-scale additive manufacturing tool, sensor and actuator, and neural probe for brain stimulation. From 2016 to 2019, he worked in the 'Institutes of Microengineering and Electrical Engineering' of the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Microcity, Neuchâtel, Switzerland as a post-doctoral scientist. His research was focused on sensors, actuators, energy harvesting, self-powered energy autonomous electronics, flexible and printed electronics, 3D additive manufacturing. His research interest lies in the field of sensors and actuators, mechanical energy harvesting, wearable and implantable devices, flexible, stretchable and printed electronics, additive manufacturing, 3D printed electronics.
