Research Interests

My research interests lie at the intersection of physical environment, terrestrial ecosystems, and anthropogenic activities. I am particularly attentive in better understanding the interaction among various factors that affect terrestrial ecosystems. The next question that needs to be addressed is how to directly or indirectly manipulate these factors to optimize long-term strategic planning and decision making process. My main focus is the adoption of geospatial technologies, remote sensing and numerical modelling to help address some of these complex real world problems.I have been involved with several projects dealing with spatio-temporal analysis of several bio-climatic indices, site selection of vineyards, plant phenological studies based on satellite remote sensing, and big data analytics. I have also applied geospatial technologies for estimation of air temperature, biomass, and evapotranspiration. In addition, my past projects explored crop modelling and its applications for crop yield estimation to help address food security issues.
