Welcome to the world of my passion!


I am Md Abdul Halim. I have been working as an assistant professor at the Department of Forestry and Environmental Science, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST), Bangladesh. Currently I’m doing PhD on a sabbatical under the supervision of Dr. Sean C Thomas, Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto, Canada. 

I had my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Forestry from the Department of Forestry and Environmental Science, SUST, Bangladesh.

My current research mainly focuses on different biophysical and biogeochemical aspects of fire and logging in the Canadian boreal forests. Other researches I’m involved in, mainly deal with biochar as a mean of soil improvement and climate change mitigation tool.

I had the opportunity to work in the three major biomes: tropical, temperate, and boreal forests. My overall research goal is to understand how our activities (mainly forestry) affect the environment/climate we live in.

Tropical Ecosystem
Boreal Ecosystem
Temperate Ecosystem
