He held a lectureship 1997 to 2001, and senior lectureship 2001 to 2003 at the School of Pharmacy, Tabriz University of Medical Sciences. During this period he was head of postgraduate studies and also vice-dean for research for a period of 4 years in Tabriz School of Pharmacy. In 2003 he was appointed as lecturer of pharmaceutics at King’s College London, Department of Pharmacy. He worked as professor of Pharmaceutical Technology at Tabriz School of Pharmacy prior to this appointment as senior lecturer of Pharmaceutics at Medway School of Pharmacy. He has supervised over 90 MPharm project students and 13 PhD postgraduate students at several institutions in various fields of pharmaceutical technology. He has carried out bioequivalence studies for many pharmaceutical companies. At the present he works on particle engineering, dissolution enhancement techniques to improve the bioavailability of poorly water soluble drugs, and controlled release formulations. He is a regular reviewer for many international pharmacy journals and editorial board of several journals in pharmaceutical sciences. Ali teaches on the MPharm Programme and is course coordinator of Medicines Design and Manufacture within the undergraduate programme. He has published a significant number of papers over 100 research articles on various fields of pharmaceutics, mainly, tableting, particle engineering, skin delivery and controlled-release formulations.
