Research Internship Opportunities

I am looking for intern students who can contribute to my environmental psychology projects. The projects seek to investigate the relationships between human behavior and environmental indicators. Students skilled in Geographic Information System techniques (e.g. QGIS) and analyzing remote sensing data (e.g. Google Earth Engine) are welcome. Programming skills in JavaScript and/or Python would be a nice addition. You need not be psychology majors to apply for the internship. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Henry Ng at
