College of Science and Engineering

Contact number: 281-283-3876
Office: Delta 170


Dr. Hasan has been an associate professor in the Computer Science program since fall 2021. He joined UHCL as an assistant professor of computer science in the fall of 2016. He teaches both graduate- and undergraduate-level courses. His research interest includes blockchain-based security models, prediction models, distributed task dispatchers, GPU performance modeling, etc.

Before joining UHCL, he was working at Schlumberger Technology USA, as a senior software engineer from 2014-2016. At Schlumberger, he was associated with the future of rigs project with Planck core research and development group and received several cutting-edge trainings and certificates. He oversaw integration direction drilling and environment correction of gamma-ray models in the future of the rig project. 

Dr. Hasan received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Oklahoma, Norman, USA in 2014. His Ph.D. supervisor was Dr. John K. Antonio, Dean of CSE, OU. His dissertation title is “Prediction Models for Estimating the Efficiency of Distributed Multi-core Systems.” His research directions were parallel and distributed computing, multi-core performance, prediction models, and general-purpose computing using a graphical processing unit (GPGPU).

He received his M.S. in Computer Science from Wichita State University, Kansas, USA, in 2001. He worked as a lecturer and was promoted to senior lecturer from 2002 to 2009 in the Computer Science Department at North South University (NSU), Bangladesh. He was voted as one of the finalists of the Piper Award for six consecutive years (2022-17). Dr. Hasan was also the recipient of the distinguished alumni award 2017 based on his academic achievement and service to the community at North South University.
