Dr. M. Pear Hossain
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 Special Administrative Region of China, 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 M.S in applied statistics from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Saudi Arabia, in 2016. Currently, he is a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Biomedical Sciences, City University of Hong Kong.
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 during his tenure at CityU. Apart from this, he contributed substantially to core statistical research.
