Dr. Sazzadur Chowdhury

Sazzadur Chowdhury, P.Eng., Ph.D., received his B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Dhaka. He received his M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Windsor, Windsor 2000 and 2003, respectively

He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Windsor. His research interest includes: electrostatic MEMS sensors and actuators, MEMS-based planar and non-planar acoustical beamforming arrays in the audio frequency and ultrasonic regime, development of high performance capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (CMUTs), and MEMS based radar sensors for automotive collision avoidance.

His current research focus is to develop an array cluster that will be capable of detecting information concurrently in the acoustical and microwave portions of the spectrum that can be used in the areas of medical diagnostics, industrial applications, and identification and security applications using biometrics. He is a professional engineer in the province of Ontario and a member of IEEE.

He has received several awards and grants in Canada for research in the area of MEMS. He is serving as the Member Representative of the University of Windsor for CMC Microsystems, a not-for-profit corporation delivering a national research infrastructure support program to microsystems researchers in universities across Canada.
