I am Abul Abrar Masrur Ahmed, graduated from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology. I have completed M. Sc. in Disaster and Environmental Engineering for the same institution. My MSc Engineering thesis topic was "Development of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) model to predict the dissolved oxygen concentration of Surma River". My research interests are utilization of Artificial Neural Network models to predict water resource variables, sustainable building materials, water and waste water treatment, utilization of natural coagulants as an alternative of chemical coagulants and impact analysis of climate change.

Area of Study

  • Future projection of local hydrological variables under CMIP5 simulated RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 global warming scenarios.

  • Bias correction of CMIP5/GCM simulated variables and GFS forecast variables. ​​

  • Changes in hydro-meteorological extremes (e.g. flood Index, drought, reference evapo-transpiration, sea-level rise, and extreme rainfall)

  • Data-driven machine learning models in hydrology, climatology, and decision making

  • Hybrid-deep-learning approach for a decision support system for hydrological variables.

  • Hybrid-deep-learning approach for Air Quality Index (AQI) forecasting.

  • Irrigation water requirement using CROPWAT model

  • Statistical Downscaling

  • Water quality monitoring and application of DO-predictive approach
