My teaching and research activities mainly focus on Geospatial Science and Remote Sensing which include Spatial modelling in GIS for user-specific applications, Urban change detection, Land use and land cover mapping, and Natural hazard analysis and mitigation. My current research activity is based on Radar remote sensing where my work focusses on monitoring and characterization of Land Subsidence due to Groundwater Depletion and Petroleum Extraction by Spaceborne DInSAR and Modelling Techniques.

Here at the university I teach Introduction to GIS, Photogrammetry-Remote Sensing &GPS; GPS and Satellite Navigation Systems, Applications of Geo-Informatics and Geothermal Science subjects to B.Tech students.

I have a M.Sc Tech (GIS & Remote Sensing) degree from University of New South Wales in Sydney and B.Sc (Hons) and M.Sc (Hons) degrees in Geology from Panjab University, Chandigarh. Before joining Academia, I had worked for some years in the GIS Industry as a GIS Specialist and as a GIS Engineer in India and Jordan.
