M. Mozahar Hossain is currently working as an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering, at King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. He received his PhD from the University of Western Ontario, Canada, his undergraduate degree from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, and his Masters from King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Saudi Arabia, all in Chemical Engineering. M. Mozahar Hossain is a licensed professional engineer, currently registered with the Professional Engineers of Ontario, Canada.
M. Mozahar Hossain's formal fields of research are catalysis and chemical reaction engineering. His main focus is on the development of next generation technologies in order to use valuable resources such as petroleum feed stocks and bio-resources more efficiently, and with minimum environmental impacts. M. Mozahar Hossain has performed substantial research in carbon dioxide capture, biomass gasification, heavy oil upgrading by hydrotreatment/hydrocracking, and selective oxidation of lighter hydrocarbons to valuable petrochemical feed stocks. In the area of carbon dioxide capture he has been working on developing chemical-looping combustion (CLC) technology, targeting large carbon dioxide sources such as fossil fuel based power generating stations.
His research work has been published in over 65 referred journal and conference articles. He has been heavily involved in various research projects funded by TIC-KACST, NSTIP, KACST, KFUPM (DSR), NSERC-Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, UOP and Saudi Aramco.
