Dr. Chowdhury joined as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial, Manufacturing, and Systems Engineering at Texas Tech University in September 2019. He works on traumatic brain injury, brain mechano-electrical modeling, musculoskeletal health biomechanics, helmet design, brain-inspired exoskeleton, robotics, and prosthetic designs, and rehabilitation engineering. His special focuses are four-fold: (1) the development of the theoretical and computational framework of brain-muscle interaction dynamics, 2) multiscale brain chemo-electro-mechanical behavior modeling using the principles of computational biomechanics and neuroscience, 3) brain-inspired designs of the exoskeleton, robotics, and prosthetics to improve human performance and neurorehabilitation, and 4) human-centered designing of helmet technologies and therapeutic solutions to reduce traumatic brain injuries in various occupational settings and daily life. He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award from the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems (CBET) in 2023. He also won the best student paper award at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the  International Society for Occupational Ergonomics and Safety Conference. So far, he has received over $2.2 million in research grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as the Lead Principal Investigator. He was elected as the Chair to serve the Occupational Ergonomics Technical Group of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, USA, for the 2021 - 2022 terms. He co-authored many peer-reviewed articles for reputed journals, including Human Factors, Journal of Biomechanics, Safety Science, Ergonomics, and Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology.  More
