Moshiur Rahman is a Research Fellow in Precision Agriculture within the School of Science and Technology at the University of New England (UNE). His research interest lies in the monitoring, analysis and forecast of land surface environmental variables and processes using remote sensing techniques coupled with physical modelling. He is also interested in 3D modelling using structure from motion (SFM) from UAV platform. In particular his main expertise resides in the use of proximal and active optical sensors including CropCircle, Quantum Bar Sensor, Radiometer, Time domain Reflectometry (TDR) etc. He has enough knowledge on electromagnetic induction sensors (mainly EM38), geographic information system (GIS) and remote sensing (RS). In his PhD he used proximal and optical remote sensors to estimate pasture growth rate (PGR) as decision support tools for the Graziers in Australia.
