Mr. Golder is a Sessional Academic at Curtin University, , currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the School of Earth and Planetary Science. He is a member of the Remote Sensing and Satellite Research Group (RSSRG) and his Ph.D. project is part of the ARC Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS). With a research focus on ocean color remote sensing, coastal zone management, marine ecology, and biological oceanography, Mr. Golder has a strong academic and professional background. He completed his BSc degree in Fisheries (Honours) from Khulna University in Bangladesh in 2018 and obtained his MS degree in Coastal and Marine Science from the same university in 2020. During his academic journey, Mr. Golder was awarded the National Science and Technology (NST) fellowship from the Ministry of Science and Technology in Bangladesh. He also received the prestigious DAAD Scholarship to pursue his master's degree in Marine Biology at the University of Bremen in Germany.
Prior to his Ph.D. studies, Mr. Golder gained valuable research experience as a Research Associate and Research Assistant at Khulna University. His projects involved land use land cover change detection, coastal zone climate change analysis, and the analysis of spatial distribution of Chlorophyll-a and Particulate Organic Carbon (POC) in the Bay of Bengal. He utilized various tools and software such as SeaDAS, R, ArcGIS, and Python for data collection, visualization, and analysis.
Mr. Golder's current Ph.D. project, as part of the ARC Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS), allows him to further explore his research interests in the field of remote sensing and satellite research. His commitment, expertise, and dedication in the field of marine science continue to shape his academic and professional journey.
