Profile of Abu Towab Md. Shahriar


Abu Towab Md. Shahriar

Assistant Professor

Department of Architecture (ARC)

Faculty of Engineering

Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University, Dinajpur.



    My career objective is to become a social researcher and educator on built environmental design. I aim to use my expertise in research and design to explore the relationship between the built environment, human settlement systems, and social behavior, mainly how design can promote social equity and environmental sustainability. I aspire to work with leading academic and research institutions and industry partners to conduct studies and develop innovative design solutions that address societal challenges related to the built environment. I also aim to share my knowledge and insights with future generations of designers by teaching and mentoring students in architectural design education programs. I hope to positively impact society by advancing our understanding of how the built environment can be designed to create more inclusive and sustainable communities.
