Mohammad Adibuzzaman, Ph.D. (he/him)


Dr. Adibuzzaman is a computational scientist by training with extensive experience in model, method, and system development for large clinical data analysis and research infrastructure development with high-performance computing system. His motivation to work in healthcare arises from a deep desire to contribute in the human well being, live life happily and abundantly. Dr. Adibuzzaman wants to use technology, extremely large data sources, and new methods to complement the clinical expertise for the future of medicine.

Mohammad Adibuzzaman (Adib) is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology and the Co-Director of the Informatics Program at the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) located at Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon. He was the Assistant Director of Data and Computing at the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE) at Purdue University, Indiana. Before that, he was also a Research Scientist at RCHE for five years. He did his Ph.D. in Computational Sciences from Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Merrill and Dr. Sheikh Iqbal Ahamed. His Ph.D. research focused on mathematical model development using eigenvalue-based methods such as eigenface for facial image classification, mixing rate or the second largest eigenvalue-based algorithm for hemorrhage detection from blood pressure, among others. Adib also worked at the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) under the supervision of Dr. David Strauss on applications of the mathematical models with clinical data and high performance computing system. Before his Ph.D., he worked as a Junior Research Fellow at the Human Computer Interaction Lab with Professor Shendong Zhao at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He also worked as a Software Engineer at the Structured Data Systems Ltd. (SDSL). Adib have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET).
