Mashrura Musharraf


I am a PhD student in the Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). I completed my Masters in Computer Engineering from MUN in December, 2013 and started my PhD to continue my research in the area of “Human Reliability Analysis during Emergency Conditions”. Currently I am working on a cognitive model to represent personnel in offshore emergency condition. The model will be implemented in a virtual environment to facilitate offshore emergency response team training.



Research Interests
