Overview

I am a chartered Energy Engineer who is now working as a Associate Professor under World University of Bangladesh. I was also appointed as Research Assistant, Research Engineer, and consultant under Renewable Energy Technology in Asia (RETs in Asia) project in Bangladesh and Thailand from January 1999 to December 2004. After successfully completed the project I was appointed as Program Support Specialist in a NGO named BRAC Bangladesh and continue the job before I joined as Assistant Manager in the Rural Power Company Ltd (RPCL) in February 2006. In July 2007, I started PhD on "Natural Draft Chimney" at Universiti Malaysia Sabah.  I was also appointed as lecturer in the TAS institute of Oil and Gas from July 2009 to August 2012 then moved Universiti Malaysia Sabah as Senior Lecturer and continue until I started my present position.
