Assistant Professor


Dr. Rahman's research mainly focus on increasing the yield and quality of agricultural products using minimum resources and reduce environmental degradation with minimal carbon footprint by applying different optimizations, waste management, and renewable techniques in controlled environment agricultural (CEA) systems. Dr. Rahman's research interest includes but not limited to:

  1. Innovation and improvement of novel sustainable HVAC technologies in CEA with low cost, low carbon footprint, and highly efficient indoor microclimate control.
  2. Innovative substrate and hydroponic systems development for soilless indoor farming.
  3. Thermal/moisture balance modeling, and energy optimizations of agricultural buildings.
  4. Integrating renewable sources (especially solar) in the indoor environment controlling systems for agricultural buildings.
  5. Innovative systems development for integrating waste recovering technologies (baggage gasification, pyrolysis, and/or torrefaction) in controlled environment agricultural production.

In the extension area, Dr. Rahman mostly works for commercial indoor agriculture production systems.
