Biography

I have joined Massachusetts Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit in June 2021. I am working on Climate Adaptation Science Center funded project "Remote Sensing of Lake Drawdown and Cyanobacteria Blooms" in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. Over the last six years, I have been involved in several NASA and NSF projects at the University of Georgia, to process and analyze multi-platform remote sensing data for aquatic, environmental, and natural resource management issues.. My primary research interest is the applications of remote sensing and geospatial science in water resources, mangroves/forest/vegetation, and climate change studies. . I taught three remote sensing courses (as Teaching Assistant and Instructor of Record) at the University of Georgia in the Geography Department that include "Remote Sensing of Environment (GEOG 4350)", "Digital Image Analysis (GEOG 4450)", and "Field Methods in Remote Sensing (GEOG 4460)". There were both undergraduate and graduate level students in all three courses.
