Career Summary


Dr. Nuruzzaman is currently working as Research Associate at Global Center for Environmental Remediation (GCER), University of Newcastle, Australia. Before joining at UON, Dr. Nuruzzaman was a full time PhD scholar at the  Centre for Environmental Risk Assessment and Remediation (CERAR), University of South Australia, Mawson Lakes, Australia (2013 to 2015) and at GCER (2015-2017). During his PhD tenure, Dr. Zaman has worked on synthesis of nanoencapsulated pesticide where insights of pesticide loading to the nanocarriers was the main aspect of his research.

Dr. Nuruzzaman is currently working on development of new low residual pesticide delivery systems using both organic and inorganic porous nano-carriers to reduce the offsite impacts of pesticide. He is also working on synthesis of smart and intelligent nano-fertilizer to enhance the nutrient use efficiency.

© 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, London. Arsenic bioaccumulation in rice grain has been identified as a major problem in Bangladesh and many parts of the world. Rice is one of the crops affected by arsenic due to its semiaquatic nature. A field study was conducted to investigate the effect of variety and water management on the bioaccumulation of arsenic within the rice plants in different rice cultivars. Ten of the most popularly grown BRRI, BINA and local rice cultivars were screened for susceptibility to arsenic under varying irrigation options. Total grain arsenic accumulation was higher in the plants grown in high soil arsenic in combination with conventional irrigation practice. Results showed that appropriate water management practice and suitable variety resulted in a reduction of grain arsenic level around 39% in addition to increase grain yield around 38%.
