Dr Kafil M. Razeeb is a Research Fellow at CONNECT in Tyndall National Institute leading Advanced Energy Materials activity.

He received his MSc in Applied Physics and Electronics from the University of Dhaka in 1999 and earned his PhD working on magnetic nanowires from the University of Limerick in 2003. After graduating, Kafil Razeeb joined the National Microelectronics Research Centre in Cork, a predecessor of the Tyndall National Institute.

Dr Razeeb’s specific expertise is in materials with interest in the development of novel nanostructured materials for Energy Generation/ Scavenging and storage for powering Internet of Things (IoT) and electrochemical sensors. In his professional career, he has been successful in sourcing over €5 million competitive research grants from the Enterprise Ireland, European Union, Science Foundation Ireland as well as the corporate sector (ADI).

Dr Razeeb has supervised 39 Bachelors/Masters/PhD/Post-doctoral fellows from Materials Chemistry, Physics and Microelectronics disciplines at Tyndall National Institute and at University College Cork.

Dr Razeeb is a member of The Electrochemical Society (ECS), Senior Member of IEEE and Chartered Physicist and Member of Institute of Physics. He is an organizing committee member of “Thermoelectric and Thermal Interface Materials” symposiums in ECS, chaired sessions and guest editor for Special Focus Issue of ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology on Thermoelectric Materials & Devices: Phonon Engineering, Advanced Materials and Thermal Transport.

He is the author of over 90 peer-reviewed research papers, 8 book chapters, 5 Invention Disclosures, 1 patent and a book: “Magnetic Nanowires: Fabrication and Characterisation”.
