About Azeem Tariq
Azeem Tariq grew up in the Punjab province of Pakistan. He obtained a MSc degree in Agronomy from his home city, Faisalabad at the University of Agriculture Faisalabad (Pakistan). In 2012, he moved to Europe for further education on EU scholarship. He obtained a joint MSc degree in Sustainable Forest and Nature Management from the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and Georg August University (Germany). He got his PhD in Climate Change from Montpellier SupAgro (France) and University of Copenhagen (Denmark). After his PhD, he has been involved in different Climate projects, to find the mitigation solutions for crop production systems. He got a competitive EU Marie Curie Individual Fellowship in collaboration with University of Guelph (Canada) and University of Copenhagen (Denmark). His research covers the area of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and mitigation options, nutrient cycling, precision nutrient management, sustainable crop production, participatory research, and upscaling the mitigation practices using modelling and participatory techniques. He studied the effect of land use transformation and agricultural nutrient and land managements on soil properties, soil chemical processes, atmospheric GHG emissions, water quality, and potential challenges and solutions for implementation of technologies at farm scale. His research can contribute significantly to the development of sustainable crop production and mitigation of GHG emissions, which are critical for addressing global environmental challenges.
