Alamdar Hussain, PhD
Associate Professor, School of Pharmacy
Chair, Department of General Education
Dr. Hussain has been part of AUHS since March 2020. According to his biography on the webpage for the School of Pharmacy:
Dr. Hussain received his Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics from the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Amarillo, TX, and his B.S. in Pharmacy from Kakatiya University in India. Prior to joining AUHS, Dr. Hussain worked as an Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the Universities of Louisiana and Oklahoma. He has taught both professional pharmacy and graduate students various courses including, but not limited to, Pharmaceutics, Compounding Pharmacy, Pharmacokinetics, Physical Pharmacy, Advanced Drug Delivery and Targeting, Pharmaceutical Technology, Medical Microbiology, and Biotechnology. He has also mentored several M.S. and Ph.D. students throughout his career.
Alamdar began his association with AUHS at a website advertising a faculty position in the School of Pharmacy and thought it would not be as cold and windy as the Great Plains where he lived at the time. Of course, he was also attracted by the opportunity to “contribute my share of academic experiences for the growth of this new school, and in turn benefit by getting involved and learning about the accreditation processes of new schools.”
In fact, accreditation work takes up a lot of his time along with administration and teaching. In his spare time, he enjoys eating, chatting with friends and family, reading non-fiction, and sleeping.
As a faculty member, his future research interests are in the scholarship of teaching and learning. Since joining AUHS, he has researched online teaching and learning (especially during this pandemic and its effects on student learning).
When asked about his future dreams he responded: “Ha hah.” It seems his dreams have been changing as he becomes more mature. Sometimes he has thought about living abroad and saving money, or, on the other hand, just living life without worrying too much about saving money.
Alamdar is a key part of making AUHS great, and Trinium recognizes this by putting the Spotlight on him.
