Welcome to rubaiatz.com, my official website. This is your host M. Rubaiat Islam and I’m an Environmental Science graduate with an immense interest for earth observation and climate science. I have witnessed some of the deadliest cyclones of our time that motivated me to study the highly dynamic climate system. As a researcher, I am interested in climate change modeling for regional and local scale impact analysis.
