Completing the B.Sc. degree in Civil Engineering in 2000, I joined the Department of Civil Engineering, Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET), a top-tier public university in Bangladesh, at the teaching position in the same year. After four years of continuous teaching, I went to Japan getting the Japan Government Scholarship for higher studies at Mie University and, there, completed the Masters and Ph.D. courses in 2007 and 2010, respectively. In 2010, I came back to my university and continued the teaching profession. However, the primary research interest is the understanding of geotechnical problems by the study of failure mechanisms through the physical and numerical modeling. Main research interests presently concentrate on the constitutive modeling and FEM simulations of elasto-visco (creep, relaxation, and strain rate effects)-cyclic-plastic behavior of soils. Other works also include model tests and FEM simulations related to soil-structure interaction phenomena in earthquake fault, excavation, ground improvement problems. In addition, the application of Artificial Intelligences (GAs and ANNs) in the geotechnical problems is also another research interest. Also, I am involved in many mega projects (e.g. Padma Multipurpose Bridge, Khulna-Mongla Port Railway Line, Khulna Water Supply Project of WASA) as a geotechnical expert, and I am playing the vital role as a technical member in many feasibility study and design projects of Port, Airport and other Civil Infrastructures.
