Imranul Laskar is a PhD student in the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia. His research focuses on global shipping emissions, and investigating the air quality, health and climate impacts, and air pollution exposure injustice of shipping for future climate change and air quality policy decision making. His works includes conducting policy analysis to mitigate in-use methane emissions (methane slip) from the use of natural gas as a marine fuel.
Imranul was previously affiliated with the University of Alberta where he completed an MSc in Environmental Engineering and held several research and leadership positions in adsorption-based air pollution control modeling and exposure assessment, waste management, and sustainability. With a background in chemical engineering, he has also worked with municipalities, environmental consulting, and petrochemical industries on air quality analysis, environmental site assessments, wastewater treatment, and zero liquid discharge systems.
