Welcome to Nawshad's Homepage

Hello! I'm Nawshad Haque originally from Bangladesh. I'm an Australian citizen residing in Melbourne.



Currently I work as a Senior Scientist. I am also a Research Team Leader and a Project Leader. I have got two professional hats. I am trained as a Professional Forester and also as a Professional Engineer. Although I was recognised by the Institution of Engineers, Australia in 2002, I formally became a Member of the IEAust in 2005.

·        I am co-supervisor of several PhD Students.

·        I coordinate "Mineral Processing Course" for undergraduate mining engineers at Monash University. I offer workshops and lectures on life cycle assessment application in mining, mineral processing, metal production and energy industries.

·        I coordinate collaborative research with organisations located in Bangladesh, India, South Korea, Finland, Chile and USA.   

·        Specialties: Process evaluation of mining technologies, mineral processing and metal production technologies using life cycle assessment (LCA) and techno-economic modelling, flowsheeting, process engineering, process modelling, process simulation, process optimisation.

I am currently a Fellow of The Australasian Institute of Mining & Metallurgy (AusIMM). I am also a member of Australian Life Cycle Assessment Society (ALCAS) since 2007. In 2009, 2010 I have been elected as a Member of ALCAS Committee of Management (COM). In 2012 I have been a Director of the ALCAS Board of Management. I was also an Associate Member of the Institute of Wood Science, UK since 1998 (IWSc: The Wood Technology Society, a division of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), which took over the activities of the Institute of Wood Science in the summer of 2009). In 2005 I was elected as a Fellow of this Institute. I am a former Member of the Institute of Foresters, Australia.


My biography has been selected in Whos Who in the World and other biographical database. My aim of life, like other scientists is to make the world a better place for human living and comfort by exploring and knowing the world around us as much as we can to accomplish our goal. My realisation is that ironically we know very little about our own world.

From 4th July 2007, I have accepted an indefinite position to work as a Research Scientist (Process Modelling) at CSIRO Mineral Resources. CSIRO is Australia's National Science Agency.


Currently my main research interest is in the area of:

I am currently working in Biomass in Iron and Steel Industry project.

My other research work entitled "Numbers add up for untapped copper ore deposits" has been published in Process June 2009 Issue from CSIRO.

One of the projects I was involved in, was broadcast by Australian Channel Ten TV on 25 August 2008, featuring my colleague Cardboard Briquettes and coverage by the local press "King Island Courier". Link for this research study Cardboard Briquettes.

I am also involved with CSIRO co-ordinated Scientists in Schools program that promotes science education in primary and secondary schools (free of cost), helps to engage and motivate students in their learning of science, and broadens awareness of the types and variety of exciting careers available in the sciences. I have got a Certificate of Appreciation from Killester College, Melbourne.

I was selected and attended Science Meets Parliament program 2009 organised by Federation of Australian Scientific and Technological Societies. As part of this program, I met two members of the House of Representatives at the Australian Parliament House to present about our research program.







Thank You
