Mr. Rezaul Hasan obtained Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering in 1997 from Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU). Later he completed his Maters degree in Water Resources Engineering in 2001 from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). He is now on leave for pursuing Ph D programme at BUET.
Mr. Reza has a professional experience of about 14 years in the field of computational hydraulics, computational hydrogeology, irrigation and drainage management, and groundwater (GW) management focusing model development with application of different scenarios. He started his career as an Assistant General Manager in Dhaka Palli Bidyut Samity under Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board. He then worked as a Research Assistant in BUET-DUT Linkage Project for several years. The research project was jointly organized by BUET and TU-Delft, the Netherlands. He was involved in the development of physical mode l set up for applying waves on dyke slopes. As a Senior Specialist of IWM, he has been assigned as Project Leader as well as resource person for a number of important water resources projects in Bangladesh. One of these projects, national level study funded by the Climate Change Trust Fund, focused on the assessment of water resources at two regions of coastal areas of Bangladesh. The main objectives of other studies included assessment of salinity extent in the coastal aquifer, zoning of GW salinity, mapping of GW vulnerability and impact evaluation of climate change on GW salinity using mathematical model.
Mr. Reza has been extensively trained in mathematical modelling on MIKE 11, MIKE SHE, FEFLOW and MODFLOW. He is also trained in the design of Water Control and River Training Works, Groundwater Management, Hydrometric Data Collection and Geographical Information System. He participated some training as resource persons. He is a life fellow of Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB), member of Bangladesh Computer Society (BCS) and also member of Bangladesh Society of Agricultural Engineers (BSAE). He has 10 publications both in domestic and international Journals/seminars/conferences. He also attended a number of national and international workshops, seminars and conferences.
