             "An educator  can reach very close to a human life in a most positive way than any other profession"

Dr. Md. Sahadet Hossain is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Physics
at North South University. He is also working as an Additional Directore at the Institutional  Quality Assurance
Cell (IQAC), a World Bank funded project, at North South Universty since January 2016.

Dr. Md. Sahadet Hossain has joined the North South University (NSU) as an assistant professor in 2012.
Prior to his joining,  he  worked  as  a  postdoctoral  research  fellow  at  the Max-Planck Institute (MPI)  for
Dynamics of  Complex Technical  Systems, Magdeburg, Germany,  from 2011 to July 2012.  Dr. Hossain
obtained his PhD from  Chemnitz University of  Technology, Germany, in 2011. His  PhD  works dealt with
the numerical methods for  model  reduction  of  periodic descriptor systems,  with  the main  emphasis 
on  methods related to balanced truncation  which  require  the  solutions of  adual   pair of   large   scale 
periodic matrix equations. The research works requireed high performance computing (parallel computing)
as well as a high amount of theoretical ingredients from various disciplines,  ranging from Systems and
Control Theory over Numerical Linear Algebra to Floquet Theory for   descriptor s ystems  (a  field  not  all
well-established yet so that also new results in that area were necessary).

Dr. Hossain also enrolled into Integrated Master in Mathematics from Chemnitz University of  technology,
Germany, in June 2006, where he took one year of math classes on the Master's  level before starting his
PhD.  He received his M.S in 2005, and B.Sc in 2003, from Dhaka University, Bangladesh, in mathematics
and applied mathematics, respectively. Dr.  Hossain’s  fields of  research  includes  Control  engineering,
model  reduction, reduced-order modeling  of  periodic systems, reduced-order  modelling of  RF  (radio
frequency)  Microsystems.  During  his  stay period in Germany (2005-2012), Dr. Hossain worked in several
research projects funded by BMBF(Federal Ministry of  Education and Research, Germany), and DFG
(German  Research  Foundation). During  his  PostDoc, he received research  scholarship from  the 
research  group- Computational Methods  in  Systems  and   Control Theory, MPI, Magdeburg.
He also received part-time DAAD Scholarship, in 2007 and 2008, during
his PhD.

Dr. Hossain has a good number of research publications in reputed journals including one Book chapter
in Springer, and many international conference proceedings. He gave his valuable talks in many  international
conferences at different countries.
