Saurabh Shanu earned his Bachelor of Technology at ICFAI University in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, in 2012, and his Master’s in Computer Science (with specialization in AI & ANN) at UPES in Dehradun. He is pursuing his PhD in Computer Science from UPES, Dehradun. He is working on ‘Complex Network Analysis and Implementation to Wildlife Corridors using Machine Intelligence’.
After completing his Master’s, Saurabh accepted a position as a faculty member at UPES, where he has been working for 7 years. During this time, he developed and used new tools and techniques for wildlife conservation as well as species abundance and distribution predictions. He focused in particular on tigers and ungulates for his computational works. In his journey, he has created a tool called ‘Animeter’ which is widely used by the entire world for camera trap image analysis. For his work in the field of computational sustainability, Saurabh had received many awards and recognitions, including an invite from the Royal Charter of London, a collaborative author in GoI’s Tiger Report and Leopard Report in 2018. Saurabh has authored many peer-reviewed papers in both journals and conferences focused on computational sustainability, especially those associated with wildlife sciences and the digitation of heritage.
