Hasinur Khan works in high-dimensional data analysis (both censored and complete). His main research interest is variable selection, model selection with regularized techniques, and statistical inference with censored data found in fields like Statistical Genomics, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, etc. He is also interested in working in Statistical Computing, Machine Learning, Public Health, Bayesian Statistics, and Social Statistics. Besides, he is interested in statistical consultancy, which includes-- general advice on applying statistical methods, including study design, data analysis, and interpretation, and all statistical aspects of business and academic research.
He published over 46 publications, one book, and 6 R packages. He supervised many graduate and undergraduate research works and taught a variety number of courses both at home and abroad. He attended and presented research works at over 21 international conferences and workshops held in 12 countries. He has received several awards, including the prestigious Conference Award for Scientists (CASc) of the International Society for Clinical Biostatistics (ISCB) for two successive years, 2015 and 2016, for outstanding research from the developing countries, the Dhaka University Science Faculty Dean’s Award for 2014, 2016 and 2020 for research excellence. He has obtained more than a dozen national and international research grants. Dr. Khan is also a member of the institutional review board of the Bangladesh Biomedical Foundation. He serves as an editor for PLOS One, Chest, Journal of Biomedical Analytics, etc, and a scientific committee member for different international conferences, including the International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Data Mining (FSDM 2019), the 2nd International Conference on Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems (MLIS 2020), and the International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence (PRAI 2022, PRAI 2023). He is a member of the technical committee for the National Primary Education Survey 2022. He was the founding president of the Institute of Statistical Research and Training Alumni Association (ISRTAA) executive committee for 2018-2022. He is the managing director of the Data Analytics Solution in Bangladesh (DaSiB) platform.
Beyond academia, I have engaged with the wider public through various media platforms. Since 2020, I have been invited to participate in television talk shows and news events in Bangladesh, where I discuss public health topics, share insights and raise awareness among the general public. I have also contributed newspaper articles on public health issues-Covid-19 pandemics, population, etc. From April 8, 2020, I published daily "A Daily Report on Coronavirus Status in Bangladesh" and continued until November 25, 2023. A total of such 963 reports have been published (link). In recent times, one notable media highlight was my Judgement Probabilistic Prediction model for the FIFA 2022 tournament, which attracted significant attention from TV and electronic media. The model had been predicted before the start of the tournament, achieved fully accurate predictions for the final match, and demonstrated remarkable accuracy throughout the competition (prediction sheet).Show less
