Mohammad Hossan, Ph.D.
Dr. Mohammad Robiul Hossan (ROBI) is an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering at the Department of Engineering and Physics at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO). Dr. Hossan received Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University (WSU), Pullman, Washington, in 2013 and joined UCO as an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the same year. He received his BS (2002) in Mechanical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), MS in Mechanical Engineering (2008), and Industrial Management (2009) from South Dakota State University (SDSU), Brookings, SD. Dr. Hossan served as the mechanical engineering program coordinator at UCO from 2015 to August 2020.
Dr. Hossan’s research focuses on developing biomedical fluidic devices, studying and regulating hemodynamic parameters for better understanding disease mechanism, progression and treatment of aneurysm and other vascular diseases, and remodeling of the vascular network. He has been awarded several NIH OK-INBRE grants and currently serves as a PI of NIH INBRE RPI grants to develop bioresorbable flow diverters and UCO’s on-campus interdisciplinary grants. Dr. Hossan is also actively participated in engineering education research about retention of student learning through low-cost desktop learning modules (DLM), the integration of mobile technologies in classroom teaching and other active learning techniques. He serves as senior personnel of a current NSF IUSE collaborative grant to educate diverse engineering communities with low-cost desktop learning modules.
Mentoring and Training: Dr. Hossan is committed to supporting undergraduate research by hosting and mentoring on-average six undergrad students in his laboratory since 2014 besides graduate students. Dr. Hossan frequently hosts and provides training/mentoring to Fulbright scholars, J1 visiting scholars, NIH and NSF supported summer research students.
Service to Professional Society: Dr. Hossan is serving as a chair for the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) micro/nanofluid dynamic technical committee for 2020-2022. He served as vice-chair for the same committee from 2018 – 2020 and organized in various capacities ASME’s international symposiums on Micro/Nanofluidics in IMECEs and FEDSMs since 2017 as track-chair/co-chair and topic chair/co-chair. Dr. Hossan is currently serving as a guest editor for the engineering journal Micromachines. He enjoys working with students in club activities and serves as a faculty adviser in several UCO’s student clubs including the ASME student chapter at UCO.
