Md. Tahmidul Islam Molla is a third year PhD student in the apparel studies track with a focus on wearable technology. He completed his master’s degree in textile and apparel management from University of Missouri and his bachelor’s degree in textile engineering from Bangladesh University of Textiles. His research interests include the development of new wearable systems, the materials and fabrication methods used, and mass manufacturing of garment-integrated technologies. His specific doctoral dissertation work focuses on the development of scalable, durable and efficient manufacturing methods for e-textiles. He enjoys spending time with friends, sports, photography, volunteering, and traveling.
