Biography

Dr. M. A. Hossain obtained his graduation (B Sc. A. H) and Masters (M.S in Poultry Science) degrees from the Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensing, Bangladesh, and the doctoral (Ph.D) degree in Poultry Nutrition from the Department of Animal Science, University of New England (UNE), Australia, and Post Doctoralresearch studiesin Poultry Nutrition from the Avian Science Research Centre, SRUC, Ayr, Scotland, UK, and from the Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Universiti Putra Malaysia(UPM), Serdang, Malaysia.

He joined as a Lecturer in the Department of Dairy & Poultry Science (DDPS), CVASU in 2003, and served as an Assistant Professor from 2007 to 2013. Currently, he holds a position of Associate Professor in the DDPS, CVASU since 2013 to date.
