Profile

Joined IBERS as a Post-Doctoral Modeler in 2018. Naveed is Gold Medalist and received his PhD from the Department of Agronomy at the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad-Pakistan and his doctoral research was based in University of California, Davis-United States. Later, he worked as a International Consultant - Agro-Ecological Zoning in Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO-UN) and developed 'Crop Suitability Model'. His current position focuses on the agricultural productivity potential of Wales and potential resources for bioenergy in UK. He has vast experience of Climate Change Studies using Crop Modeling and Remote Sensing/GIS and land assessment/crop suitability mapping. He is very passionate about research on environmental issues, sustainability and socio-ecological resilience.
