I am writing this reference for Md. Shohel Rana who is studying for Computational Science Doctoral program at The University of Southern Mississippi, United States and I know Shohel for more than five years in my capacity as a teacher at Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University. Shohel had been an undergraduate student in my department, Computer Science and Engineering at Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University for four years. He also competed M.Sc. (Engr.) from this department. During this time period, I have closely observed him in different courses conducted by myself and I witnessed his tremendous growth and development. I fully supervised him at his undergraduate and graduate research projects. As a Supervisor, I have found him to be a creative and independent person. Recently he is working as Senior Lecturer in the Department of Software Engineering at Daffodil International University (DIU). His recent continuous contribution to research by publishing research works in reputed research journals and conferences made me proud. He has the genial dedication to his research. Shohel was one of the favorite students. He is an invaluable asset to any department. I highly recommend Shohel for hiring him at The University of Southern Mississippi with absolute confidence. He has made me proud, as his teacher and supervisor, and I am sure will continue to be devoted to becoming the best kind of educator.
