“I like the students' positive attitude toward accepting new ideas and concepts to solve regular problems.” - Dr. Haider on what excites him most about being a part of the APSU community. 
  • Ph. D. in Electrical Engineering from University of North Dakota
  • M.S. in Electrical Engineering from South Dakota State University
  • B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), Bangladesh
Dr. Haider joined the Department of Engineering Technology team at Austin Peay State University (APSU) as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2021. Prior to joining APSU, Dr. Haider has taught more than ten undergraduate courses in the areas of electrical and electronic technology, embedded systems, and digital circuits at the School of Engineering and Technology, Central Michigan University (CMU) from 2018 to 2021. In addition, he has advised several senior design projects at CMU. He is an active member of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Dr. Haider also serves as a reviewer for several conferences and journals, including IEEE WF-IoT, IEEE EIT, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Journal of Signal Processing Systems, and Remote Sensing of Environment.
His research interests lie in the broad fields of Biomedical Signal processing and Brain–computer interface (BCI), including Image processing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Internet of Things (IoT). Dr. Haider is an author of various publications including multiple journal/conference articles and book chapters.
