About my research
Currently, I'm working as a doctoral student at the Centre for Environmental and Climate Science (CEC), Lund University. The PhD project is embedded in a large Formas project that aims to assess the biotic and abiotic climate effects (“costs”) of rotation forestry. The aim of my research is to analyze scenarios of alternative reforestation strategies (after clear-cut and after forest fire) for different climate predictions using ecosystem model (LPJ-GUESS) and field level vegetation and carbon data.
I have a background in forestry from Khulna University (Bangladesh), where I obtained my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Forestry and Master of Science in Forestry, and I did research on developing allometric equations for estimating stand-level carbon stock of trees in Bangladesh.
I have obtained my 2nd master’s degree, Erasmus Mundus double master’s degree in Mediterranean Forestry and Natural Resources Management from the University of Lisbon (Portugal), and MSc in Forestry and Environmental Science from the University of Tuscia (Italy). For my Master's thesis, I investigated the relationship of different vegetation indexes (VIs) to Interannual Variability of fluxes (GPP and NEE), and evaluated the applicability of MODIS, Landsat-8 and Sentinel 2 based VIs to predict the fluxes, where I developed, even more, my knowledge and skills in remote sensing, large data handling and ecosystem modeling.
In addition, I have successfully attended the 6 ECTS course "Monitoring terrestrial ecosystems carbon cycle (ICOS)" at the University of Tuscia and a short intensive course titled "Fundamental concept of biogeochemical cycling" from George-August University Goettingen (Germany).
Apart from all my professional background, I am an easy-going person who believes in simplicity, and knows it is never too late to do right things. I am able to work well with diverse groups, as well as independently, and travelling to new places and enjoying the charming beauty of nature, which is what I like to do most.
