Welcome to my official website!

Did you know that the American government has placed millions of satellite images online available for free download to everyone in the world? I’m a student at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and I use these satellites every day to study water. Check out this site for some ways how we can use satellites to study water/water pollution in rivers, bays, and other water bodies.

I like doing activities with local school kids on environmental science – my projects have spanned from North Carolina to Sweden. Check out some of the animations the kids made, or you can get started by watching “Mr. Turtle Gets Sick.”

One of my favorite things to do is to make short animated films about my research, about Sweden, and about human rights issues.

I also play the piano, wrote an opinion column in the Daily Tar Heel, bike, read, and translate Arabic news into English.
