Dr. Anam joined UAP in 2000 with an excellent academic background. Before joining UAP, he worked as a Lecturer at BUET, Teaching and Research Assistant at UT Austin and Texas A&M University.

Dr. Anam's main research interest is based on structural dynamics, including earthquake engineering, vehicular vibration, ocean wave mechanics, offshore structures, dynamic soil-structure interaction, random vibrations, etc. He has developed theoretical and numerical methods for the calculation of nonlinear wave forces, wave kinematics, foundation stiffness and probabilistic modeling. His works have been published in the journals and monographs of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE) and presented at various international conferences across the world.

At UAP, Dr. Anam teaches various theoretical and sessional courses on Engineering Mechanics, Structural Analysis and Design. He serves in the editorial boards of the CE departmental Technical Bulletin and the Journal of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He has led the research work on structural dynamics and earthquake engineering at UAP and has supervised thesis works of final year students on the dynamic analyses of Reinforced Concrete buildings, bridges, concrete pavements, steel towers, soil-structure interaction, probabilistic structural dynamics, structural control, ductility, seismic detailing and retrofit of Reinforced Concrete frames and flat slabs, as well as masonry structures, developing several computer programs as well as experimental models on linear and nonlinear structural dynamic analyses. Results of his research works at UAP (in collaboration with UAP students and faculty members) have been published in the proceedings of international conferences at Canada, Australia, China, South Africa, Thailand, India and Bangladesh.

Dr. Anam has served as the principal investigator and main resource person in government funded research projects and training courses on seismic analysis and structural dynamics.
