I did my undergrad in urban and regional planning (URP) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in Dhaka, Bangladesh. My master's degree is also in URP which I did here at the University of Iowa. Now, I am a PhD student in the civil and environmental engineering department, and a graduate research assistant at IIHR for Professor Gabriele Villarini. My current research focuses on the impact of urbanization in modifying rainfall and flooding associated with tropical cyclones in USA.
Some little fun facts about me are that I love to travel to new places, and as cooking is my stress reliever, I cook a lot and try different recipes.
