Message
Tofael Ahamed is an Associate Professor, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba, which is one of the leading universities in Japan relocated at the Tsukuba Science City in 1973 from Tokyo University of Education. Dr. Ahamed has also teaching and research experiences as Lecturer, Assistant, and Associate Professor in the Department of Farm Power and Machinery, Bangladesh Agricultural University, established with academic support from the Texas A&M University during 1961. He received PhD from the University of Tsukuba and conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. Dr. Ahamed performs research in the field of precision agriculture technology, agricultural robotics and decision support systems using GIS and satellite remote sensing. In the sensing system development, Dr. Ahamed focuses on enabling smart application of IoT in agriculture, where crop production varies spatially and temporally within the field boundaries depending on the soil and environmental conditions. Besides teaching and research activities, Dr. Ahamed supervises graduate students in the field of precision agriculture technology, agricultural robotics and decision support systems. Most of his research articles have published in the reputed journals like Transactions of ASABE, Biosystems Engineering, Journal of Mechanical Design, Sensors, Biomass and Bioenergy and Energy. Dr. Ahamed is a lead author of three textbooks: Bioproduction Engineering: Automation and Precision Agronomics for Sustainable Agricultural Systems; Data to Knowledge: Interdisciplinary Research Methodology for Agricultural Sciences; and Sustainability: Integrating Environment, Agriculture and Renewable Energy for Food Security. He has awarded University Gold Medal from Bangladesh Agricultural University for outstanding academic results and Best Faculty Member Award from University of Tsukuba for his contributions in teaching and research.
