On April 8, 2018, I took the responsibility of Project Director at Agriculture Information Service, Ministry of Agriculture. I am Agricultural Scientist, focused on drought stress physiology in potato. My expertise in Soil Fertility and Plant Nutrition, Agricultural Extension, Training Management, Total Quality Management (TQM ), Database Administration, Innovation and Coordinator in Human Resource Development Program exposed me to a vivid array of multidisciplinary research and management opportunities. Currently I am engaged in educating and teaching Diploma in Agriculture Students who are the future promising agricultural extension service providers to the farmers at grass root level.
I am extremely motivated by creative approaches for the best utilization of existing resources (both natural and human) in Agriculture along with application of ICT interventions. Being a Civil Service Officer and Agricultural Scientist, my long experiences (more than 27 years) with the farmers, natural resource management, motivational activities, extension services enlightened me to design and develop need based technology and deliverable services at the doorsteps of the farmers.
My experiences in ICT arena as Database Administrator in the Department of Agricultural Extension and MIS responsibility in the Bangladesh Public Administration Training Center (BPATC) enabled me to train up and facilitate Civil Service Officers as a service delivery organ and bring them linking to the citizen services. My 26 years service tenure in DAE and BPATC provided me enormous opportunity to understand Bangladesh Agriculture, Key role players and Citizen Service Providers in Agriculture, Training and Knowledge Management pushed me for developing models towards decision making and service integration for the farmers and agricultural stakeholders in Bangladesh.
