Shaikh Hasibul Majid, PhD
Dr. Shaikh Hasibul Majid is a Post Doctoral Researcher at the Electrical and Computer Engineering department of University of Waterloo. He obtained his PhD from University of Saskatchewan, Canada and since then he has been working on advanced medical imaging devices used in X-ray imaging. His current work includes fabrication of selenium based Frisch Gridded X-ray imagers, a new technology that requires less X-ray exposure to produce sharper images with a better resolution. With the reduction of image lag in digital imaging, this technology helps to generate images at a faster frame rate that eventually will be used in future faster radiology devices such as X-ray Computer Tomography (CT) and Positron Emission Tomography (PET). He has also developed a new type of detector named as Flex-Selenium Detector and is currently working on to enhance the performance of the detector.
Dr. Majid obtained his BS from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology and MS from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals. He has published more than four journal papers and has presented his work in nine conferences. His research interest includes large area electronics, electronic materials and devices, digital imaging and CMOS imagers. In the year 2010 Dr. Majid was awarded Mitacs Post Doctoral Fellowship. He also holds NSERC Industrial Fellowship and was awarded NSERC visiting fellowship.
