Dr. Munna Khan has been working as a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Electrical Engineering Department (EED), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) Central University, New Delhi, India from 2011 to till date. Dr Khan worked as a Director in Professor Scale of Mewat Engineering College (Wakf), Palla, Nuh, Mewat, Haryana, India from 2009 to 2011 on deputation. Earlier, Dr Khan taught as an Associate Professor from 2005 to 2009 and as a Lecturer/ Sr Lecturer from 1992 to 2004 at EED, JMI Central University, New Delhi, India. Dr Khan was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati from 2004 to 2005. Dr Khan also worked as visiting Professor during May to June of 2012, 2011, 2009, 2007 and Assistant Professor during May to July 2004, 2005 at Wright State University, Dayton, OH, USA. 
Dr Khan received his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from IIT Delhi on Jan 04, 2002. He passed B. Tech. and M. Tech. in Electronics Engineering from Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh in 1989 and 1993, respectively. Dr. Khan has held various administrative as well as academic positions and developed various laboratories with their manuals. He introduced new courses at various levels of teaching. He has completed three R & D projects from Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Government of India. He has published more than 120 research papers in International/National journals and conferences.  Dr Khan guided four Ph.D. thesis and 12 Ph.D. scholars are working under him.
Dr Khan is an active member of IEEE Society of Engineering in Medicine & Biology, USA and life member of Biomedical Engineering Society of India, and Indian Society of Technical Education. He has also contributed to the national pride by carrying the Indian flag to 48th International Congress on Aviation and Space Medicine at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Sept. 17, 2000. He has delivered many invited Lectures/Talks at International and National levels.

Dr. Munna Khan has introduced a number of new dimensions in bio-instrumentation for health care and thereby significantly advanced human welfare. The specific contributions are in conceiving the concept for non-invasive quantification of lung edema onset and distribution. It not only shows the presence of fluid but it roughly estimates the amount of fluid accumulation. This particular methodology has helped in reducing morbidity in persons who go to high altitude. Also the innovative technique and instrumentation has value in hospital medical practice. The second domain of impact of Dr. Khan is in the original thoughts in the welfare of aviation pilots. The approach of biofeedback controlled anti G-suit will significantly reduce incidence of G loss of consciousness and consequent loss of aircraft among the pilots flying high performance aircrafts. He presented new formula, which predicts quantitative blood pooling in the simulated leg segment of the aircraft pilot against variations of inertial forces. The third domain of impact is analysis of body composition for Indian population and valid of different model for both Indian males and females. The bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) equations were developed to predict body composition for Indian population. The predicted values of TBW and FFM are very much closer to the one measured through the instrument. The higher frequencies results are much closer to the measured value as compare to low frequencies. This is due to the fact that at low frequencies, the current cannot bridge the cellular membrane and will pass predominantly through the extracellular space, whereas at higher frequencies penetration of the cell membrane occurs and the current is conducted by both the extra-cellular water (ECW) and intra-cellular water (ICW). Other domain of research impact has also been achieved as design and development of implantable solar cell based energy harvester suitable for powering implantable cardiac pacemakers.
