Geography & Environment
Dr. Md. Nazrul Islam is an Associate Professor of the Department of Geography and Environment in Jahangirnagar University, Dhaka-1342, Bangladesh. His fields of interest are environmental and ecological modeling of climate change impact on aquatic ecosystem, modeling of phytoplankton transition, harmful algae and environmental management of marine ecosystems regarding to deal with hydrodynamic ecosystems coupled model on coastal seas, bays and estuaries, application of computer based programming for numerical simulation modeling etc. He did his Ph.D. (Environmental Systems Modeling) at Graduate School of Engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan entitled “Numerical Simulation Modeling on the Transition of Dominant Algae and Toxin Production Mechanism in Aquatic Ecosystems.” Besides, he has completed Two Years Standard JSPS Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Marine Ecosystems and Engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan with a novel and interesting research on ‘Numerical simulation of the effects of radioactive pollutants from Fukushima nuclear accident on marine ecosystem by integrating MEC and ECOPATH model at Kamaishi Bay, Pacific Coast in Japan’. Dr. Nazrul also visited as faculty member and invited speakers in several foreign Universities of Japan, USA, Australia, UK, Canada, China, South Korea, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapur and Vietnam etc. Dr. Islam has been awarded “Best Young Researcher Award 2012” by the International Society of Ecological Modeling (ISEM) for the outstanding contribution to the Ecological Modeling fields and he has also been awarded “Best Paper Presenter Award” entitled ‘Cyanobacteria Bloom and Toxicity of Lake Kasumigaura in Japan’ by SautaiN in Kyoto, Japan.
