Hello! This is Amit Hasan

Researcher | Reader | Writer

You are welcome to my world

Hello! I am  AMIT HASAN, first year PhD Student in Neuroscience at Institute of Neuroscience Paris-Saclay (NeuroPSI), University of Paris-Saclay, Paris, France. 

Previously, I completed my undergraduate degree in Biotechnology at Rajshahi University, Bangladesh. Afterward, I pursued my master’s degree in Life Sciences and Health, followed by Computational Neuroscience and Neuroengineering at the University of Paris-Saclay in Paris, France.    

I am highly passionate about applied research. Brainstorming research problems, doing experiments inside the laboratory, analyzing a large volume data set, and finally deducing a result from that intrigues me a lot. Since I am fond of  unpredictability  in life, and research capable of supplying that now and then, my future goal is to spend as much time as possible in academia.  

I can bear suffering with a smiling face and make suffering meaningful at the end. My fascination spreads from history to psychology and theology to philosophy. I like people who have interesting stories in their basket, and who are often unpredictable, while I lose interest when people become predictable. I am an extrovert person, but like introvert people – literally I like their silence. 

Besides, I love to  read  books and feel better when I  write. I often write short stories, book reviews, and travel stories.  I feel blessed when I travel and meet new people.  I have a dream to do  science journalism in multiple languages. Overall, I have so many interests and I am curious by nature. You may find myself sometimes irritating, sometimes friendly; however, sometimes silence like long winter nights. 

I don’t think too much about my future, but life always forces me to do that.
