My journey in academia started at the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), where I received my first degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering in 2009. Following that, I obtained my Ph.D. in Engineering from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2014. I worked there as a Research Fellow until starting my career as an Assistant Professor in Marine Technology at Newcastle University (NU), UK (Singapore Campus), in 2016. I started my current appointment as a Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in July 2022. ... ...
Currently, I am working with several exciting projects involving the design and numerical simulations of various Engineering problems. Aside from the works done by the students under my supervision, few of my projects involve multidisciplinary collaborations with researchers from the industry and other educational institutions.
