Graduated from Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh in 1988, Dr. Islam started his career as Scientific Officer at Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA) in 1994 and promoted to Senior Scientific Officer in 2004. He did MS and Ph.D. degrees from the department of Agricultural Extension Education of the same University in 1998 and 2007, respectively. In 2012, he joined Sylhet Agricultural University as an Associate Professor at the department of Agricultural Extension Education and upgraded as Professor in July 2016. Throughout his service career as researcher and professor he has successfully completed a total of 15 extension research projects funded by BARC, NATP-2, KGF, JICA and Ministry of Science and Technology. Some of these projects like ‘Innovation of flash flood coping rice technology through participatory approach’; and ‘Study on resilience of the Hoar farmers on the production of Boro rice under the threat of early flash flood’ are notable. He has supervised 24 MS students and published 54 research articles in various national and international journals.
