A A Masrur Ahmed

Assistant Professor (On Leave): Leading University

PhD Researcher: University of Southern Queensland

I graduated from Shahjalal University of Science and Technology with a B. Sc. In Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2009. I completed my MSc Engineering in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the same University. After completing my studies, I joined as a Lecturer in the Department of Civil Engineering, Leading University. However, currently, I am doing my doctoral research at the University of Southern Queensland, Springfield, Australia. As a PhD candidate, I am working on the development of a Hybrid Deep Learning forecasting model to forecast the hydrological variables in Australia’s Murray Darling Basin. Apart from my academic duties, I am working as a Joint Secretary of JCPSC Alumni Association, a social service association in Bangladesh.

Research Interest

  • 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

Current Works/ Projects

  • ​​Deep learning-based future projection of hydrological variables under global warming scenarios (under PhD)

  • Bias correction of GFS forecast variables for solar power generation (under APR internship)

  • Market price forecast model using machine learning.

  • AQI-predictive model for Bangladesh.

  • Hybrid deep learning predictive model for Mean Sea Level change.
