Hi, I am Md Zakir Hossain, Assistant Professor (On Leave) of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) Department, Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET), Khulna, Bangladesh.

I am currently doing PhD in the Human Centred Computing (Hcc) research group of the Research School of Computer Science at The Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.

About Me


My research is focused on computing human affects from image, videos, and sensors-data-analytics to improve mental health. I am intensively focusing on developing machine learing algorithms and conducting novel physiological research. Specifically, I have been concentrated on analysing physiological sensors data to recognise human affective conditions using maching learning algorithms. I am also working on extracting visual information, driving simulator and so on. Here is a link to my Google Scholar page.


  1. Affective Computing: smile discrimination, stress detection, mental well-being, emotion recognition etc.
  2. Signal Processing: electrical (voltage, power etc.), physical, physiological (eye gaze, pupil dilation, ecg, gsr, bvp, eeg etc.) sensor data
  3. Machine Learning: modelling, optimization, feature selection, fusion, classification (neural networks, support vector machines, relevance vector machines, k-nearest neighbours, genetic algorithm etc.), ensemble etc.
  4. Pattern Recognition: correlation, rule discovery, prediction of time series etc.


I have been appointed as a Lecturer in University of Information Technology & Sciences (UITS), Dhaka, Bangladesh at 23 January 2012, and then appointed in EEE, KUET from 10 June 2012 as a Lecturer. Now my job designation is an Assistant Professor in KUET. I was/am involved with different tutoring, project and thesis related work with other responsibilities. I was the organising Committee member of International Conference on Electrical Information and Communication Technology (EICT-2013), KUET, Bangladesh.
