Towfiqul Quadir

U. M. Towfiqul Quadir is a PhD student in the University of Texas at Arlington. He has completed his Master’s degree in Structural Engineering from The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia in November, 2013 and his Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Dhaka, Bangladesh in November, 2011. Previously he worked as a faculty in North South University, International University of Business Agriculture and Technology and also in Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Dhaka.

During his tenure in MIST, he also worked in many Detailed Engineering Assessment (DEA) projects of garments factories around Dhaka. He has worked in several research projects such as Behavior analysis of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) jacketed RC slender columns and Development of sustainable green concrete using industrial wastes or by-products starting from 2014. His research interest includes Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) for structural strengthening, building construction, sustainable concrete, mechanical and micro structural properties of concrete, structural property and behavior analysis and retrofitting.
