RESEARCH INTEREST

    I started my research on the impact of different soil nutrients and other intercultural management on different crops like potatoes, bananas, rice, etc. from 1996 to 2002 at BAU, Mymensingh and Agricultural College, Dinajpur, Bangladesh. Then I have done a lot of research on agricultural land use systems during the period of 2003 to 2009, at HSTU, Bangladesh. My research was primarily into the evaluation of different Agroforestry practices as sustainable land-use systems. Then from 2010 to now, I am researching environmental impacts on ecosystems and Biota. Now a day, I am also working on the impact of climate change on agricultural productivity and livelihood security. I have assessed the impact of environmental pollutants on ecology in both Sweden and Vietnam. I have also researched the impact of air pollutants using different modeling approaches in England. I have worked extensively on the elevated ground-level ozone (O3) impacts on the vegetation at the laboratory of Ecology and Environmental Sciences, Athens, Greece. I have also assessed the carbon sequestration potentiality of some important Agroforestry multipurpose tree species. I have published nearly 45 scientific articles in various scientific journals at the national as well as international levels. Further, I have presented various papers in international/national and local seminars, symposia, conferences, workshops, etc. I have also written various popular articles related to Agroforestry and Environmental issues in the local language. My current research interests include: 1. The impact of climate change on biota at the individual level and on the ecosystem as a whole. 2. The impact of different pollutants like mining pollutants, Industrial pollutants, and Brickfield pollutants 3. Modeling of air pollutants in the catchment of Bangladesh agriculture and ecosystems.
