I am from Bangladesh. I am blessed with amazing parents who are my continuous source of inspiration. From my childhood, I have a desire to make a difference in the Earth around us. These inevitable factors convinced me to do a Ph.D. in Earth and atmospheric sciences. I have started my Ph.D. at MSU in August 2018 and serving as a Teaching Assistant and Lecturer for GIS and Earth science courses under the department of Geosciences. I perceive research as the way through which I might contribute to society and the environment. The fun fact about me are meeting new people, traveling, gardening, fishing, and baking.


  • Doctor of Philosophy in Earth and Atmospheric Science (August 2018 – Dec. 2021), Department of Geosciences, Mississippi State University, MS State, United States. Dissertation Topic: Determining the effects of elevated carbon dioxide on soil inorganic carbon, weathering potential and acidification: A case study with Mississippian soils
  • Master of Science in Soil Science (March 2015 - August 2017), Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Bangladesh, Thesis Topic: Digital Mapping of Soil Organic Carbon Using Random Forest Regression Kriging Algorithm
  • Bachelor of Science in Agriculture (Jan. 2011 - March 2015), Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Agricultural University, Bangladesh

Research Interests

My scholarly interests range widely; I am thrilled to learn new skills, which somehow left me yearning for a deeper understanding of new methods to improve natural resource management in a sustainable manner. I am interested in geostatistics and spatial analysis, soil-water interactions, biogeochemistry, climate change and ecology, carbon flux modeling, decision-making, technical writing, communication materials, capacity building, and professionalism.
