A. K. M. Fazle Hussain is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Chemical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Internal Medicine, and Cell Physiology & Molecular Biophysics at Texas Tech University, where he also holds the titles of President's Endowed Distinguished Chair in Engineering and Science and Senior Adviser to the President.[1] He is a member of the advisory board at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology.[1] In 2001, Hussain was inducted into the National Academy of Engineering for "For fundamental experiments and concepts concerning important structures in turbulence, vortex dynamics, and acoustics, and for new turbulence measurement techniques."[2]


Hussain received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. Following his MS and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University in 1966 & 1969 under the guidance of William Craig Reynolds, Hussain was a post-doctoral fellow at the Johns Hopkins University with Leslie S. G. Kovasznay and Stanley Corrsin.
