Mohammad SadequrRahmanhas received his BSc Fisheries (Hons.) and Masters of Science in Fisheries Management degree from Bangladesh Agricultural University with distinguished merit position. He joined as Lecturer in the dept. of Fisheries management and then in the dept. of Marine Bioresources Science at 2013.  He was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2015 and then was appointed as Head of the Dep. of Marine Bioresources Science. He got prestigious University of Sydney International Scholarship (USydIS) 2016 for his PhD research on evolution of viviparity in sea stars.

Mr. Khanhas experience in various fields, viz. analyzing water quality parameters, evaluation of production performance of fisheries organisms, Microsatellite and RAPD marker based molecular work, collection of data on aquaculture trends and report writing based on field survey, ecology of coastal and marine organisms. In his PhD research, he will apply micro-computed tomography, confocal microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and transcriptomic to understand morphology of viviparous sea star. Heis enthusiastic to build his career as a researcher in the field marine biology & ecology, conservation biology and evolution of marine organisms.
