Civil and Environmental Engineering

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Florida State University since Fall 2020 with a major in structural engineering. I have earned my Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, Bangladesh, and Masters of Science in Structural Engineering at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Bangladesh. I worked on the dilation behavior of FRP confined concrete columns made of brick and recycled aggregate and studies the effect of confining stress distribution in the square and circular FRP confined concrete columns in my Masters study. I have been working as an assistant professor at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, Dhaka, Bangladesh, and was also involved in different consultancy and research projects in Bangladesh. In my Ph.D. program, I am working on the performance-based design of advanced fiber reinforced concrete structures, including strain-hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) and ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC), and also developing a multi-scale model for the design of advanced fiber reinforced concrete. My Ph.D. research was also funded by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) which had given the notability and prestige associated with it. Moreover, the fact that support from an American government organization for my research demonstrates that my research is aligned with the US government’s pursuits in civil engineering. I am involved with the REMS lab at the RIDER center and Structures lab and strength of materials lab at COE. I am an active member of ASCE, ACI, RILEM and RIDER center. I like traveling, watching movies, and listening to music.
