Rakib Hasan, B.S.


Rakib Hasan hails from the picturesque city of Barishal in Bangladesh and brings over five years of industry experience to his Ph.D. research in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). With a foundation in computer-aided design and manufacturing, Rakib has led research and development teams in Bangladesh, gaining expertise in wearable sensors, machine learning, and image processing along the way.

Currently, Rakib works as a research and teaching assistant in the Medical Design and Innovation Laboratory at UTSA, focusing his efforts on medical robotics, devices, and fabrication. He has contributed to a state-of-the-art review paper on breast cancer diagnosis using convolutional neural networks, published in the Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research. Additionally, he has presented research on a novel liquid flow-loop testing methodology for suction device evaluation at a poster session.

Outside of the lab, Rakib indulges his passion for music and audiobooks. He can be reached by phone at (+1) 774-526-2015 or by email at rakib.hasan@utsa.edu.
