I have eight years of experience in analysis, design and construction supervision of various national and international building projects. I obtained my MASc. degree in structural engineering from the University of British Columbia (UBC). At Present, I am a PhD candidate at UBC. Besides studying, I have also worked as a Sessional Lecturer for Engr 425: Design of Steel and Timber Structures course at UBC. I have served as a Structural Engineer for the DFID Bangladesh and New Delhi office building and DFID ancillary buildings in Dhaka etc. These buildings were designed against both seismic and blast loading. I have also served as a Structural Engineer for reviewing the design of seven factories and several ancillary structures for ABL factory project. The estimated cost of this project is $20 million. I have also carried out the structural design of a multi-purpose cyclone shelter which has been engineered to resist category-5 cyclone. This project was funded by the British Business Group. I also provided Structural Engineering services to UNDP and the Bangladesh Election Commission to develop a project for construction of 500 server stations for electoral data base and 9 regional centres in Bangladesh. The estimated cost of this project was $30 million. My another notable project was seismic retrofitting of the International French school in Kathmandu, Nepal. The building was a 3-storied masonry structure. The retrofit design was based on splint and bandage technique which strengthened the building up to life safety performance level. This building survived the April 2015 Nepal earthquake (Mw 7.9) without any damage and it was later used as a refugee camp for the disaster affected people. Please contact me at: email:
