Naureen Khan: Research

Intro and Contact

I am a first year PhD student in the UB Glacier Modeling Lab. I am from Chittagong, Bangladesh and I completed my BS in Environmental Science with a minor in Mathematics from Asian University for Women in 2018. I studied Ocean Acidification in the Northern Bay of Bengal from 2017-2018 for my undergraduate senior thesis.

My primary research goal right now as a 1st year graduate student is to locate crevasses in the Greenland Ice Sheet. I am working on a Convolutional Neural Network machine learning algorithm using Google Colaboratory and Google Earth Engine to automatically detect crevasses in the GrIS. I am really excited to learn something new about Glaciology everyday!


My hobbies include playing video games, watching anime and more.
