Biography

I have been serving IUT, a subsidiary organ of OIC, as faculty in the Mechanical and Chemical Engineering Department since 2004. I completed Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from IUT in 2004. In 2009, I have obtained the degree of Master of Applied Science in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University (Montreal, Canada) with full scholarship. My M.A.Sc. dissertation was "Numerical Analysis of Tip Leakage Flow and Shroud Heat Transfer in an Axial Gas Turbine Engine" from which four ISI indexed journals have been published. I also have received my Ph.D. degree from IUT in 2016. My PhD dissertation entitled as “Numerical Study of Emission Control of Urban and Rural Kitchens for Healthy Environment” from which one ISI journal has been published so far. Apart from these publications, I do also have a number of International and national peer reviewed journal publications and technical publications in the international conferences. I have the expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and can efficiently handle CFD tools applicable for aerospace industry and environmental emission analysis. During my higher studies, I was the recipient of several awards at home and abroad.
