Md. Shah Alam received the B.Sc. Engg., M.Sc. Engg. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and electronic engineering. He was awarded a gold medal for outstanding performance in B.Sc. Engineering examination. He received the Japanese Government Scholarship from April 1991 to March 1997 for pursuing his graduate studies. In 1997, he was a visiting researcher with the Electrotechnical Laboratory, Tsukuba, Japan. Then in 1998, he became a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh, where he is now a Professor. During 2003–2004, he was on postdoctoral study leave from BUET and worked as a Research Fellow in the Photonics Research Group, City University London, U.K. His current research interests include optical fibers, photonic crystal fibers, nonlinear properties in fibers, electrooptic modulators, plasmonic biosensors, Metamaterials, and the application of numerical techniques to guided-wave photonic devices, and microwave integrated circuits.
