PhD Student

I am pursuing Ph.D. in Pavement Engineering at Carleton University under the supervision of Dr. Kamal Hossain. I have completed my Master’s specialized in Geotechnical Engineering from Saga University, Japan with the Japanese Govt. Scholarship, MEXT. Throughout my master’s course, I was actively engaged with research on numerical analysis of the interaction of soil-CDM column under embankment loading using Plaxis 3D. I have also carried out numerical investigation on defect detection of CDM column through Pile Integrity Test (PIT) using Abaqus FEA. I completed my Bachelor’s from CUET, Bangladesh, where I spent a year finding the efficacy of pozzolanic material (Silica Powder) as a partial replacement of cement to prevent the acid intrusion into the most vital material for civil infrastructure, i.e., concrete.
