Khandker Ishtiaq, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Associate

I received my Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (major in water resources and ecological engineering) from Florida International University. I obtained B.S. and M.S in Water Resources Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. My research interests focus on the water-wetlands-carbon nexus, modeling and prediction of ecosystem carbon fluxes, and big data analytics that advance our understanding of the emergent properties of ecosystem function and resilience under a changing environment. As a post-doctoral researcher at FIU Wetland Ecosystem Research lab, I am currently working on the development of the Everglades peat elevation model in response to sea-level rise and saltwater intrusion.
