Investigating the Impact of the 2018 Kerala Floods

I learned the basics of Google Earth Engine and the Python language and was able to combine these skills with my experience in computer science to create and conduct the research project. Over the course of five weeks, I investigated the effects of the 2018 Kerala floods on low-income communities using remote sensing and consolidated my experience and findings into a ten-page research paper.

I learned important skills in adjusting and adapting — despite setbacks due to the pandemic, we were able to still do meaningful research over the summer. Bhanu Cheepurupalli '21
