My Academic Career

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Hons.) from Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, where I achieved first class, received a 'Gold Medal' for being first in my class (SAU 57th Batch), and earned a Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Award. I also completed a Master of Science in Agronomy from the same university, where I was once again top of my class with a CGPA 4.0. He received his Ph.D. on ‘Plant Stress Physiology and Antioxidant Metabolism’ from Ehime University, Japan with a scholarship from the Japanese government. Later, I completed his postdoctoral research at the Center of Molecular Biosciences, University of the Ryukyus, Japan, as a recipient of the JSPS postdoctoral fellowship. I was also the recipient of the Australian Government’s Endeavour Research Fellowship for postdoctoral research as an Adjunct Senior Researcher at the University of Tasmania, Australia.
