Academic Credentials:

Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Science and Engineering                                    Jan 2016 – Jan 2020

Military Institute of Science and Technology

Bangladesh University of Professionals

CGPA: 3.84/4.00 (1st position in batch)


Research Experience:

Undergraduate thesis titled:

  “Nuclear Data Processing and Neutronics Analysis of Nuclear Reactors using OpenMC and NJOY21 Codes

   Thesis supervisor: Prof. Dr. Abdus Sattar Mollah

   Summary: Using the Monte Carlo method, important neutronic parameters and various reaction rates were

   calculated and analyzed for different nuclear reactor configurations. Continuous energy cross-sections were

   processed at multiple specific temperatures for the simulations using nuclear data processing code.

▪ CFD data visualization and analysis using python programming language.

Computational Fluid Dynamics: Droplet dynamics and microfluidics.

Atmospheric dispersion modeling.
