ABOUT ME

Feroza Begum was born in Bangladesh on September 16, 1972. She earned a PhD in Engineering degree in Electronics and Information Engineering from University of the Ryukyus, Japan in 2007. Earlier she earned a Master in Engineering degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from University of the Ryukyus, Japan in 2004. She received B. Sc. Engineering degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Dhaka University of Engineering and Technology (Former Bangladesh Institute of Technology, Dhaka), Bangladesh in 1998.

After receiving the PhD degree, she started her career as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at University of the Ryukyus, Japan from October 2007 – February 2009. She also worked as an Associate Professor at School of Information Science and Engineering in Dalian Polytechnic University, China from March 2009 – July 2009. She worked as a JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) Foreign Visiting Researcher during August 2009 - September 2011, at University of the Ryukyus, Japan. She worked as Associate Professor at Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department in International University of Business Agriculture and Technology, Bangladesh from September 2011 – April 2012. Moreover, she worked as an Assistant Professor at Electronics and Communication Engineering Department in East West University, Bangladesh from May 2012 to July 31, 2015. Currently she has been working as an Assistant Professor at Faculty of Integrated Technology since August 2015 to till now.

She has got a number of awards in recognition of her research activities and academic records. These include the JSPS Fellowship in 2009, the excellent thesis advisor award of Dalian Polytechnic University in China in 2009, the recipient of the best paper award from FWOCNT in 2009, the Marubun Research Promotion Foundation Award of Japan in 2008, and the Director’s Honorary Award from University of the Ryukyus in Japan in 2007.

She supervised more than 20 undergraduate 4th year students and 2 graduate students in home and abroad. She published 35 journal papers and 64 international conference papers, 1 book chapter and 2 invited paper with author and coauthors. She attended in different international conferences/workshops in abroad. Her present research activity includes the design, simulation and implementation of low loss optical fiber for optical communication systems and optical coherence tomography systems.

SOCIAL, ECONOMIC, or ACADEMIC BENEFITS

Microstructure optical fiber is a special type of the lightwave guide which has a silica-air microstructure surrounding the fiber core region and running down entire length of the optical fiber. This silica-air microstructure creates larger index difference between core and cladding for light guiding and responsible for many of its attractive guiding properties that was even unimaginable for conventional two material optical fibers. Fiber optics systems have allowed scientists to make many important advances in the telecommunication, mechanical and medical fields. Sound, video, and computer communications are more reliable than in the past. Engineers are able to monitor and maintain safer modes of transportation. And doctors can perform less dramatic life-improving procedures. The world of fiber optics has opened many possibilities for solving technological problems and has improved human civilization.
