Dr. Khondker Shajadul Hasan is currently working as an assistant professor of Computer Science at the University of Houston - Clear Lake (UHCL), Houston, TX. Before joining UHCL, Dr. Khondker has worked at Schlumberger Technology, Houston, as a Senior Software Engineer from 2014 -2016. He was associated with future of rigs project with Planck core research and development group and received several cutting-edge trainings and certificates. Dr. Khondker was responsible of integrating direction drilling and environment correction of gamma-ray models in the future of rig project. Dr. Khondker received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Oklahoma, USA in 2014. His Ph.D. research directions were parallel and distributed computing, multi-core performance prediction models, and general-purpose computing using graphical processing unit (GPGPU). He received his MS in Computer Science from Wichita State University, Kansas, USA, in 2001 and BS in Computer Science from North South University, Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 1998. He has worked as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer from 2002 to 2009 in the Computer Science Department at North South University.

Dr. Khondker has worked as a Research Assistant at MSCI Inc., Oklahoma, on site. He was associated with the multi-core CPU performance prediction modeling in distributed environment group. He was in-charge of introducing mathematical models, associated parallel algorithms, and simulators for the research project. The work was highly appreciated by the research community and resulted in several high-ranked journal and conference publications. Dr. Khondker has also worked in the Samson high-performance research lab in the University of Oklahoma where he utilized his proposed performance prediction models to introduce task dispatchers in distributed multi-core environment. Both task dispatchers were compared against widely used commercial system with real-world heterogeneous benchmark workload (SPEC 2006). Empirical results showed the accuracy of introduced task models which outperformed the commercial task dispatcher.

Dr. Khondker is the recipient of distinguished alumni award 2017 based on his academic achievement and service towards the community from North South University. Recently he received two internal research grants from the UHCL. Dr. Khondker is the recipient of Robberson Research and Travel Grants in 2014 and the recipient of the Computer Science Advisory Board Scholarship 2012–2013. His research interest includes parallel and distributed systems, performance modelling algorithms, and real-time scheduling. Based on his research interest and expertise, several undergraduate and master's students are working with him on their final thesis/project. Dr. Khondker has published several Journal and conference papers in highly reputed peer-reviewed conferences and Journals. Besides, Dr. Khondker is working as a reviewer for multiple journals and conferences. He is also the member of Schlumberger Eureka Technical Community (SETC) and International Association of Engineers (IAENG)
