B.Sc (Hons) (Geology), Panjab University, Chandigarh

M.Sc (Hons). (Geology), Panjab University, Chandigarh

M.Tech (GIS & Remote Sensing), University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia

PhD (pursuing), University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun

Area of Specialization:

  • GIS and Remote Sensing, Geology

Research Interest

  • 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 doctoral research activity was based on Radar remote sensing where my work focussed on monitoring and characterization of Land Subsidence due to Groundwater Depletion and Petroleum Extraction by Spaceborne DInSAR and Modelling Techniques.
