Muhamad is a PhD student supervised by Ljiljana Fruk (Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) and advised by Daniel Munoz-Espin (Oncology). His research focuses on developing a nanosensor to detect cellular senescence post lung cancer therapy, a phenomenon that has been suggested to promote cancer growth and relapse. Muhamad has an MSc (Hons) in Chemical Engineering (Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands) and an MPhil in Biotechnology (University of Cambridge).
