Prof. Dr. Mohammad Amir Hossain Bhuiyan

Environmental Sciences
Jahangirnagar University


Dr. Bhuiyan is one of the pioneers in the field of environmental research in Bangladesh. His efforts are mostly highlighted in the fields of environmental pollution and public health concerns, anthropogenic stresses on earth, water resources management, climate change and disaster management in Bangladesh. His contributions in assessment, monitoring and methodological development in environmental research are nationally and internationally praiseworthy. His research outcomes in water resources and fluvial disaster management are considered as guidelines to policy makers for future disaster management in Bangladesh. Dr. Bhuiyan's contributions in the morphological evolution of lower Brahmaputra-Jamuna River and its sediments' geochemical interpretations are very important achievement for the Quaternary Planetary changes in the southern Himalayan region. Dr. Bhuiyan regularly focuses the recent climate change, water resources and environmental problems in the well-circulated Daily Newspapers in Bangladesh for public dissemination and awareness building. Dr. Bhuiyan's efforts on integrating different methodologies/approaches for better, easier, understandable and comprehensive assessment of environmental problems encoursing to the international community. Dr. Bhuiyan has successfully applied Remote Sensing & GIS techniques to geochemistry for mapping geochemical contamination zones for safe management of surface water and groundwater resources in Bangladesh. Dr. Bhuiyan has been promoted as Professor at May, 2016. Throughout his career Prof. Bhuiyan achieves the William Greenwood Award 1999 for hia contribution on morphological evolution on lower Ganges River by the Association of Geoscientists for International Development (AGID), Brazil. Dr. Bhuiyan received “Geomorphologist Award 2009” by the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG), Melborne in 2009 for his outstanding contribution on morphological analysis and fluvial disaster on lower Brahmaputra River. During his PhD degree, Okayama University honors Dr. Bhuiyan the academic excellence Prize 2010. For his over research career and within the age limit of 40 years Bangladesh Academy of Science (BAS) and The World Academy of Science (TWAS), Italy awarded Dr. Bhuiyan “BAS-TWAS Young Scientists Prize & Gold Medal 2014”. Prof. Bhuiyan is a proud owner of outstanding research articles in the international peer-reviewed journals. He is a professional member of many international societies such as Geological Society of America, Japan Geosciences Union, The Geochemical Society. Currently Prof. Bhuiyan supervising many M.Sc., Mphil, and Ph.D students.
