Dr. Hussain was born in Dhaka in 1948. His academic activities starting from primary school to university level were in Dhaka. He had his Ph.D. research works done in Institute of Applied Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Research Centre, Karlsruhe, Germany.
Apart from educational activities Dr. Hussain was very much interested to extra-curricular activities like games and sports. He liked and still like the game of football and cricket. He played football in favor of our department (Physics) while he was a student of Dhaka University. After joining Dhaka University as a faculty member, he was in charge of football game teacher of physics department, DU, for several years. He also worked as a member of football committee of Dhaka University for few years. He also worked as student advisor of the departmental (physics) students. While he was a faculty member of DU, he supervised the thesis works of a number of students of M.Sc., M.Phil & Ph.D. After his retirement from Dhaka University he joined BRACU on April 15, 2015 and now is in charge of the Institutional Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) of BRACU and in addition he is also taking a course in physics under MNS department of the University.
