Research Interest

My current research interests focus on the potential application of satellite remote sensing, GIS and machine learning technology in the domains of smart agriculture, forest phenology, biodiversity and climate change. Currently, I am working on Canadian Boreal and Indian Himalayan forest ecosystems. I am very curious to explore new technologies such as Google Earth Engine (GEE) and R programming for satellite remote sensing based analysis. Over the period of 4 years, I have developed several automatic routines on GEE and R platforms to address various research problems especially for challenging areas where field based collection methods are both expensive and time consuming.
