Hassan is Professor of Nutritional Epidemiology with a joint appointment at the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition and the School of Public Health, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada.

Since 2006, when the data on the first national survey on nutrition was released through the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS, 2004), he has actively been involved in serval research projects evaluating nutrition and health status of Canadians. He has been using complex health survey data such as CCHS, Canadian Health Measures Survey and NHANES surveys to address his research questions. Building capacity in serval graduate students and research personnel, publishing and presenting data at various conferences, and providing consultation to policymakers are some of the outcomes of his work.
