Nazanin Chaichitehrani

Nazanin is a visiting Ph.D. candidate from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge in the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences. Nazanin’s Ph.D. research focuses on implementing numerical experiments to study sediment dynamics on Louisiana shelf using the Delf3D model combined with observations taken from ship cruises and satellite remote sensing. Her research includes complex data analytics and satellite remote sensing algorithm evaluation and implementation (both atmospheric correction and ocean color) in the complex coastal zone of the western flank of the Mississippi River delta. Additionally, Nazanin is working with Brittany Thomas onĀ Algal Responses to Hurricanes
