PROFESSIONAL DATA

Degree MS in Oceanography
Job type Research , Natural Resource Management
Research Area(s) Physical Oceanography , Physical Oceanography
Research Activities During my time studying oceanography at the DU, I spend my last three years working on Hydrodynamic Modelling, Satellite Altimetry, Nutrient Cycling, CTD data collection, processing, I also did my MS thesis in "Hydrodynamic Modelling of Tide Driven of North-eastern part of Bay of Bengla" using MIKE 3 Coastal Modelling software. During this research I was on a deep sea vessel and surveyed almost twenty thousand square (20,000) kilometer area in the Northern part of Bay of Bengal for 26 days (in one leg). On that expedition I have also collected samples of sediment and water (nutrient, phytoplankton and zoo-plankton).

I have done lab work in nutrient analysis, phtoplankton and zooplankton identification and dinoflagellate cyst identification on a research project.

Internship

During my internship at IISc, Bangalore my topics was "Sea Surface Height from Satellite Altimetry,  Hydrodynamic Model and in-situ measurement of offshore of Cox’s  Bazar". Here I worked with French Scientist Stephane Calmant and Fabian Donald.

Mentoring

I also trained undergraduate and post graduate students on Hydrodynamic and ecological Modelling  MIKE 3 (thesis group) CTD operation and data processing in the Department of Oceanography, University of Dhaka.

Team Lead

Surveyed area of twenty thousand (20,000) Square Kilometer between 20 - 21.5 degree North Latitude and 89.5 - 92 degree East Longitude, maximum distance ran about 181 Nautical Mile, maximum depth covered about 70 meter and spend 26 days in one leg in the Bay of Bengal.

During expedition we have collected:

1. CTD Data (Temperature, Salinity, Density, DO, pH, PAR, Fluorescence and Turbidity)

2. Water samples for nutrient, chlorophyll concentration, phytoplankton and zooplankton (Niskin Sampler, Phytoplankton net and Zoo-plankton net)

3. Sediment Samples (Vaan Veen Grabber)
