Feroz Khan

PROJECT OFFICER

Feroz is the Project Officer of the Informatics for Equitable Recovery project, which is a collaboration between the Earth Observatory of Singapore, Kathmandu Living Labs, Stanford University, ETH Zurich, NASA, Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, and others to develop post-disaster information systems that more accurately and more equitably account for differential vulnerability, impact and need.

At DASL, he also brings his expertise in the social sciences, translating lived experiences of individuals and communities to identify insights that can be incorporated into models for understanding and quantifying disaster risk.

Feroz holds a B.A. (Hons) in Environmental Studies from Yale-NUS College in Singapore, where he graduated in 2018. As an undergraduate, he worked mainly on climate justice organising and research, including decentralised clean energy, fossil fuel divestment, and water justice.

Outside of work, Feroz’s interests include exploring Singapore’s hawker centres, visiting public parks to spot otters, and supporting local activist groups.
