Science Communication

I was selected as one of 12 finalists to participate at the 2022 Berkeley Lab Research SLAM, a lab-wide competition for postdocs and early-career scientists. As the sole representative of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area (EESA), I won the second place in the SLAM finals. You can check out a recording of my pitch here

Workshop on the use of satellite-based precipitation datasets in water resources management. Khartoum, Sudan (Jan, 2019)

Workshops in Developing Countries 

I was fortunate to have the opportunity of instructing several training workshops on the use satellite-based precipitation data sets for water resources management in Africa. Workshops were graciously funded from UNESCO International Hydrological Program (IHP) and US Army Corps of Engineers.  

June 2018 at Washington DC. 2018 cohort of the AMS science policy colloquium.

Science Policy

I was selected to participate in the competitive program of Summer Policy Colloquium organized by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) in 2018. The program brings together a cohort of professors, post-docs, scientists, grad students and professionals in the field of climate science for an intense two weeks period at Washington DC. Participants are provided with the opportunity to learn from senators, congress members, staffers and politicians in the Capitol on how science policy is shaped at the federal level. More about the program can be found here.  

Peer Review

Over a period of three years as a PhD student and one year of Postdoc, I have reviewed a total of ~40 papers in journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Water Resources Research, Geophysical Research Letters, Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, Journal of Hydrology, Remote Sensing and others.
