Anthropogenic climate change and extreme weather events: implications for Bangladesh
Ruksana H. Rimi is a DPhil student in the Climate Research Lab, Environmental Change Institute. Her doctoral research aims to quantify the role of anthropogenic climate change drivers in changing probabilities of extreme weather events in Bangladesh. Her research interest for climate change developed when she worked for different climate research-based events organised by the Climate Change Cell, Department of Environment, Government of Bangladesh. Ruksana holds a BSc and an MSc in Environmental Sciences from Jahangirnagar University, Bangladesh. Her MSc thesis on climate change impact on rice production in Bangladesh was awarded the Ministry of Science and Technology Fellowship. She holds a second MSc in Climate Change Science from University of East Anglia, UK.
Ruksana served as Assistant Professor at the Department of Environmental Science and Resource Management, Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University, Bangladesh before starting her DPhil program at Oxford University.
