Dr Haque is a tenured-track full-time teaching & research staff (Level C), an elected Fellow of the Institution of Engineers (FIEAust) and an Associate Editor of the Australian Journal of Civil Engineering (AJCE). He has been conducting research in two major areas: critical infrastructure and carbon-sequestration. His work on biochar carbon sequestration in soils and protecting infrastructure in acid sulphate soils (ASS) are of significant contributions, where a low carbon footprint based mix design method for improving engineering properties of soft ASS has been developed to reduce risk associated with the serviceability performance of infrastructure. He is the recipient of many industry and national competitive grants, valued at $5M in total (2-ARC Discovery, 2-ARC Linkage, 1-Rail CRC and 2-large Industry projects). He has been successful in securing 3-large ARC LIEF grants of $3.8M in total to establish world-class laboratory facilities at Monash, including a high resolution X-Ray CT Facility ($1.2M). He has published more than 85 papers in reputed journals and conferences. He has supervised successfully 12 PhDs and 5 Masters students as main and associate supervisors since 2002.

Dr Haque worked as the Director of Teaching of Civil Engineering (2014-2015) and thus provided leadership to develop quality learning & teaching practices through development of new policies and procedures. He is the program leader of the off-campus master of infrastructure engineering & management program. He has been teaching CIV4249-Foundation Engineering, CIV4212-Civil Engineering Practice 4 at undergraduate level using the Real-Project-Based learning approach.
