Research interests

  • Chemistry


Javid is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Chemistry, King’s College London. He received his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the Aligarh Muslim University India in 2012, followed by a master’s degree from the same university in 2014 with organic chemistry as specialisation. He then moved to the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune for his PhD where he worked with Prof. Pinaki Talukdar. His PhD work focused on supramolecular approaches to the design of artificial ion channels and their implications in cellular systems. After finishing his PhD, he worked for one year as a research associate in the Talukdar Group, before joining the McTernan Group at King’s College London in September 2021. His research interests include the application of molecular capsules and machines in biological settings. 

Research Interests

  • Molecular machines
  • Membrane chemistry
  • Cellular delivery
  • Artificial cells

Javid is interested in the study synthetic molecular machines in the domain of biology. His interests are focused to understand how molecular machines can interact with cellular machinery and modulate cellular signaling.  He is also interested to understand the application of these machines from the perspective of diagnostics and therapeutics. 


Javid is currently teaching workshops for advanced organic chemistry (6CCC0010 Advanced Topics in Synthesis and Reactivity (23~24 SEM1 000001).
