Dr. Rashid is active in research, having published or co-authored about 200 articles in journals, conferences, workshops, invitational talks and technical reports. His contributions on Geographical Information Systems for Agriculture were included in the CIGR Handbook of Agricultural Engineering Volume VI: Information Technology. He has received a host of awards including the National Excellent Scientist Award, Gold Medal at Geneva’s Inventors Competition, and the best speaker in an international GIS and Remote Sensing conference, being some of these accomplishments.

Dr. Rashid has a passion for teaching and student activities. Students have ranked him excellent in teaching since 1999. Dr. Rashid loves collaborative projects and in the last two years he has travelled to Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Macao, China, Oman, and Saudi Arabia to pursue these objectives. Dr. Rashid has received several international recognitions for his work. Among these is the DuoDenmark Fellowship in 2005, while in 2008, he was awarded the Endeavour Award Scholar by the Australian government; for 2009, he has been awarded the Erasmus Mundus Scholar award by the European Union and will be lecturing and researching at the Munster University, Germany for a semester in 2009.

As a specialist in GIS, Dr. Rashid helps the expansion of GIS into Agriculture, Healthcare, and Environment that depends on GIS. Thus, his work is of significant benefit to society and it is only appropriate that he serves the community that has done so much to place him where he is today.
