Abul Abrar Masrur Ahmed

Postdoctoral Research fellow in Water Resource Modelling

The University of Melbourne

A dedicated data scientist with experience in deep learning and machine learning techniques for hydrology, water resources, renewable energy, bias correction, and climate extremes. I have an ever-evolving research profile with ten years of academic teaching experience. I am keen to build a career in applied data science and artificial intelligence to understand data and make impactful data-driven decisions. I look forward to work with dedicated teams on grants, publications, HDR supervisions, and teaching/research opportunities.

Research Interest

  • Disaggregation of Annual Irrigation water use

  • 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 evapotranspiration, sea-level rise, and extreme rainfall)

  • Data-driven deep 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

  • AI-Driven Statistical Downscaling

  • Water quality monitoring and application of DO-predictive approach

Current Works/ Projects

  • Desegregation of Annual Water Use​​

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

  • Bias correction of GFS forecast variables for solar power generation

  • Market price forecast model using machine learning.

  • AQI-predictive model for Bangladesh.

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