Biography

Dr. Hossain joined as a faculty member of Arkansas State University (ASU) in 2012 and serves as an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering. His research interests include energy conservation, recycling, nano- and bio-modifications, and intelligent system design of geotechnical and transportation materials for pavement applications. He is also faculty member of an interdisciplinary research team at the Center for Efficient and Sustainable Use of Resources (CESUR). Dr. Hossain focuses on the development and characterization of innovative geotechnical (stabilized subgrades and aggregates) and asphalt pavement materials and green technologies that will safeguard the environment and facilitate to build longer lasting pavements. Besides mechanistic performance evaluation, Dr. Hossain is interested in surface science and analytical chemistry (i.e., spectroscopy) approaches to evaluate these materials. Furthermore, Dr. Hossain's is interested in constitutive modeling, data mining and visualization, neural network modeling, lean construction, and molecular dynamics simulation of pavement materials. Dr. Hossain also holds "Green Belt" certification on Lean and Six/Sigma from the University of Oklahoma. Dr. Hossain a recipient of President's Gold Medal from Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (erstwhile Bangladesh Institute of Technology) for his outstanding performance in his undergraduate study.
