UL Lafayette Physics student Sakib Mahmud has been working on a major UL Lafayette-led effort to study the mammal population in the Gulf of Mexico. Sakib has found a way to explore his love of nature through research on the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on Gulf cetaceans.

Under the supervision of Dr. Natalia Sidorovskaia, he has been involved in deploying acoustic sensors in the Gulf and in analyzing the large amount of data collected. His research work has recently been acknowledged by the leading authority, the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI).
