Dr. Hossain’s research interests focus on developing innovative statistical methods motivated by complex biomedical and environmental applications. He has developed novel spatial and spatiotemporal models for cluster detection and also in the area of cluster detection diagnostics for small area health data. Dr. Hossain's methodologic work has been published in several top biostatistics/statistics journals such as Statistics in Medicine, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, etc. His application research in health services and patient outcomes has received numerous public attentions. He has been successfully funded via National Cancer Institute and National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute grants for his work. Dr. Hossain has over 30 peer reviewed journal papers and has also been an ad hoc reviewer of several top statistical journals. He is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute.

PhD: Statistics, Institute of Statistical Mathematics, Japan.

MSc: Statistics, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
