Biography

Md. Asif Hasan Anik is a strong believer in sustainable transport given its high capacity, energy efficient, and low emissions movement. The theme of his research is transportation planning with main focus on the design of transportation systems that maximize demand attraction and mode shift to transit in cities and communities. He received his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Civil Engineering degree from Islamic University of Technology (IUT) in 2016. He received IUT Gold Medal 2016 for excellent academic results during his undergraduate studies. Currently he is pursuing his Master of Applied Science Degree in Civil Engineering at the Department of Civil and Resource Engineering, Dalhousie University, Canada. Apart from academics, he served as IUT Cricket Captain and also as the Vice-Captain of IUT Football Team. He was awarded as the best player at Inter University Futsal Tournament 2016 where IUT became Champion.
