Hossain, Md Pear

Post-doctoral Fellow

Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics

  • PhD

Dr. M. Pear Hossain received a PhD in Biomedical Sciences with a concentration in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong in 2022. Before this, he obtained the B.S. and M.S degrees in Statistics from the Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh in 2009 and 2011 respectively, and a M.S in Applied Statistics from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia in 2016.

He is a recipient of the Hong Kong government’s most prestigious scholarship for PhD studies - “Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS).” At the City University of Hong Kong, he received “Chow Yei Ching School of graduate studies entrance scholarship,” “Outstanding Academic Performance Award for Research Degree Students,” and “Research Tuition Scholarship” for his excellence in the academy and research.

His current research focuses on modeling infectious disease dynamics and assessing the impacts of interventions and potential factors on disease transmissibility and severity. He published several articles in this field. Apart from this, he contributed substantially to core statistical research.
