Aminul Islam Chowdhury has joined as a Lecturer in the School of Business (SOB) of Chittagong Independent University. He is primarily responsible for teaching foundational level courses offered by School of Business.
Aminul completed his BSc and MS in Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from University of Dhaka. Shortly after completing his MS in Bangladesh, he moved to the United States to pursue a Master’s degree in the field of Agricultural and Natural Science from Tennessee State University. In 2016, Aminul obtained another MS in Environmental Pollution Control from The Pennsylvania State University, University Park. His research interest was emerging contaminant in water and air pollutants.
Though originally educated as an Applied Chemist, he has received training and degrees which has given him an edge in multidisciplinary area. His primary focus of research is related to Environmental pollution and Environmental sustainability. While working as a graduate student in Tennessee State University, he worked in various projects related to carbon sequestration, greenhouse gases and drinking water and watersheds. The thrust of his research was to quantify various trace elements (micro and macro) in bottle and tap water across Middle Tennessee, USA. He got intensive training both on field scale and in lab setting. He learnt how to operate state of the art instrument- Inductive couple Plasma optical Emission (ICP-OES), a highly sophisticated tool for analytical chemistry.
In Pennsylvania State University, UP his work was related to subsurface water and monitoring of NOx, SOx emission for central Pennsylvania. In the recent past, he worked with the National Atmospheric Deposition Program NADP(http://reeis.usda.gov/web/crisprojectpages/0198685-national-atmospheric-deposition-program-nadp.html) with his advisor Dr. Elizabeth Beth Boyer.
