PROFILE


SHORT BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Md. Tajuddin Sikder, Chairman & Associate Professor, Department of Public Health and Informatics, Jahangirnagar University, received a PhD at 2013 from Graduate School of Environmental Science, Hokkaido University, Japan. He completed the most prestigious JSPS post doctoral fellowship at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Hokkaido University in 2018. Earlier in 2016, he was the post doctoral researcher at Graduate School of Environmental Science and, a visiting researcher at the Faculty of Health Sciences in 2015 under Heiwa Nakazima Foundation. He is basically an Environmental Health Scientist and his research interest center on understanding the health impacts of the environmental pollution and, design and synthesis of innovative remedial options. In the remediation arena, he has developed some effective technologies for the decontamination of both surface and ground water. He has also investigated the similarities, gap and status of surface water with comparative view in both developed and developing countries. In addition, he has completed several projects and made numerous contributions to Environmental Health, Environmental Medicine; and currently he is working on the evaluation of food toxicity and its associated health impacts. He is a good cited young researcher and has published as author and co-author over 70 articles in reputed journals. He received Hokkaido University Environmental Science Award 2016 (2nd Matsuno Award) for the outstanding contribution in environmental remediation sector.

Earlier, He was employed (2009-2014) as a faculty member of the Department of Environmental Science, Stamford University Bangladesh. He received a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences from Jahangirnagar University in 2006, and an M.Sc. from the same Department in 2007.  He was awarded the JSPS-Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) scholarship from Japanese Government to do his Ph.D. In 2012, he was rewarded by the excellent researcher award among all international students of Hokkaido University. He has given numerous invited talks and tutorials in USA, France, Italy, Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mongolia, Hong kong, and Nepal.
