UNO Doctoral Student Awarded Environmental Research Internship

May 25, 2022

As South Louisiana and other coastal regions gear up for what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts will be an above-normal 2022 hurricane season, University of New Orleans student Md Mohiuddin Sakib will spend the summer researching ways to combat the environmental impact of such storms.

Sakib, a doctoral student in earth and environmental sciences, has been awarded a 10-week paid internship at the Water Institute of the Gulf within the Coastal and Deltaic Systems Modeling Department.

Sakib’s research focuses on numerical process-based models. Numerical modeling enables researchers to simulate large-scale experiments that would be too costly or impossible to perform on a real coastal area. More here.
