Biography

Md. Asaduzzaman was born on 02 February, 1982 in the village Goaria of the district Pabna, Bangladesh. He is the eldest son of Mr. Md. Mokbul Hossain Biswas and Mrs. Sahida Khatun. He completed two PhD degree, one in aquaculture from Wageningen University, The Netherlands and another one is in Aquatic Bioscience from The University of Tokyo, Japan. He also completed two master degree, one is in the field of Aquatic Molecular Biology and Biotechnology from The University of Tokyo, Japanand another one is in Fisheries Management from the Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh Bangladesh. He obtained his Bachelor degree of science in Fisheries (Honours) in 2002 (examination held in 2004) from the Faculty of Fisheries, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh. He obtained 1st position in B.Sc level with 80.65% marks, which was the record mark of Faculty of Fisheries as well as the Bangladesh Agricultural University. Therefore, he was awarded four Gold Medal Awards and one merit award in recognition of excellent results in B.Sc Fisheries (Hons.) and Master of Science level.

Immediately after completion of Master’s degree, he was involved as a Research Fellowin a number of internationally funded projects such as-IFS funded project, USAID funded ACRSP project, USAID funded CDR project and INDO-DC (EU) funded “Pond Live” project in the Department of Fisheries Management at Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, Bangladesh.After completing his PhD degree, he started his professional life as Senior Lectrurer at University Malaysia Terengganu, Malaysia from January 2014 to April 2016.
