About me

Occupation Emeritus Professor of Computer Science, University of Keele
Introduction Born in Bangladesh in 1938, Prof S. M. Deen got his PhD in 1965 from Imperial College (London) in Particle Physics, the area into which he researched for a number of years, before moving into Computer Science in 1970. He is at present Emeritus Professor of Computer Science at the University of Keele, England. He is the first person in the UK and second in the world to write a book on Computer Databases – a book that had been translated into several languages, including Chinese, Dutch, Italian and Spanish. He has published over 100 substantial research papers and written many books on Computer Science. He also has founded two charities, one for PhD students from developing countries at Keele and the other for a school in Bangladesh. He comes from a sufi Sayyed family. The book Science Under Islam is his first work on a religious topic, prompted by his interest in science, his concern at the current Muslim weakness in science, and his desire to see Muslims flourish in science (and technology), as they once did in the past. The success of this book has inspired him to launch a Campaign for More Science Among Muslims [CAMSAM] under his Muslim Reform initiative.
