Prior to joining UAP, Dr. Jihad worked as a Researcher during his 3 years of Ph.D. studies in the Mechanic and Fire Resistance Division (MRF) at the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment (CSTB), Marne la Vallée, France. He also worked as a Special Ph.D. Research Student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DICA) at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy with the research collaboration of CSTB and UPPA, France. Dr. Jihad also worked as a Research Assistant at CSTB, France, Politecnico di Milano, Italy and UAP, Bangladesh.

In addition to academic and research responsibilities, Dr. Jihad Miah actively involved on the international research benchmark of the “Thermo-mechanical modeling of the Vulcain tests on 3 loaded concrete walls exposed to the ISO 834-1 standard fire curve”, where eight laboratories from six countries participated. Dr. Jihad Miah is an active technical member of RILEM TC 256-SPF: “Spalling of concrete due to fire: testing and modeling” (https://www.rilem.net/groupe/256-spf-spalling-of-concrete-due-to-fire-testing-and-modelling-309). 

Dr. Jihad Miah's main research interest is in the area of concrete structures in fire and non-fire, fire spalling behavior of concrete, thermal and mechanical properties of concrete at high temperature, durability of heated concrete, incorporating of mineral admixture in cement, high performance and ultra-high performance fiber-reinforced concrete, fair-faced concrete, and recycling of industrial residues as construction raw materials. His works have been published in the peer-reviewed journals and he presented his research work at various international and national peer-reviewed conferences across the world (i.e., USA, Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, Czech Republic, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, and Bangladesh).
