Originally from Bangladesh, Dr. Ahmed has maintained a very strong research interest in the formation of the monsoons of that country and how they affect the land and people of the area. He has received several research grants for this endeavor from sources including the United Nations Development Program. His interest in climate is not just restricted to Bangladesh, he also enjoys teaching his students about the micro-climate and weather patterns here in the local area as well as on regional and global scales.
