Mr. Uddin has graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, Post graduate in Master of Science in Surgery, and PhD (ongoing) in Animal Welfare. Since 2012, Mr. Uddin has been working as a faculty member at the Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, University of Rajshahi. Mr. Uddin’s job responsibilities include teaching and research, focusing on animal welfare. He is presently on study leave for his PhD degree. Previously he also worked at UNDP as a technical officer (Livestock), and as a Veterinarian at Community based Dairy Veterinary Foundation, Bangladesh.
Mr. Uddin’s PhD research work is entitled “Infrared thermography - Could it be used to indicate stress and productivity in dairy cows?” He was directly involved in the experimental design, data collection and analysis. He recorded cows’ behaviours, milk productivity and infrared thermography of key external body surface regions, such as eyes, using a large number of cows (260) from the University of Queensland Dairy herd, across 3 consecutive periods, once a month apart. This was a follow up experiment of a pilot study on some extreme left (15) and right (16) lateralised cows of that herd. He has published several journal papers in related international journal (Applied Animal Behaviour Science Journal), regarding lateralised behaviours of dairy cows and its relation to milk productivity and infrared temperature of eyes and coronary band of forelimbs. He has also attended several international conferences on animal welfare, for example, 53rd Congress of the International Society for Applied Ethology (ISAE), Bergen, Norway (5th to 9th of August, 2019), and ISAE Australasia-Africa Regional Meeting, Brisbane, Australia at November, 2017.
