I joined the Sylhet Agricultural University as Lecturer on 1 January 2013. Now I am working as Assistant Professor since 1 January 2015 in the Department of Irrigation and Water Management, Faculty of Agricultural Engineering & Technology, Sylhet Agricultural University, Sylhet-3100, Bangladesh. In 2014, I got VLIR-OUS scholarship to pursue my master as IUPWARE (Inter University Program of Water Resources Engineering) student from KU Leuven and VUB, Belgium. In 2016, I obtained Master of Water Resources Engineering from KU, Leuven (and VUB, Brussels), Belgium with great distinction result. During this master's, I had also completed a thesis work on ''Multi-model approach to quantify the conceptual model uncertainties in groundwater simulation in Bangladesh'' with professor dr. Ir. Marijke Hysmuns. Moreover, I studied some of the different Modelling courses (like MODFLOW, HYDRUS, HEC-HMS, AquaCrop etc.) and basic of programming languages (such as R, R-Studio, MatLab etc.) for numerical modelling of the Water Resources System. I have studied GIS, Remote Sensing (use ArcGIS, ILWIS software), Advanced Mathematics and Statistics etc. for formulating water resources system. I have completed my bachelor in Agricultural Engineering in 2008 and masters in Irrigation and water management in 2010 from Bangladesh Agricultural University, Bangladesh. I have a keen interest in crop modeling and groundwater modeling. Beside this, I have a strong interest in climate change impact assessment and applying remote sensing for appropriate precision agriculture to save water. I wish to lead the younger generation of my country to this crucial field.
