About me

My star sign is Pisces and fittingly I am a natural dreamer :).

I am from a small village named Racherla Boppapur in Karimnagar district of Andhra Pradesh, India. I grew up in a village named Kisannagar in Nizamabad District where I went to school (St. E. A. S. High School) and lived with my maternal grand parents. I should label myself as a lazy student somehow managing reasonably good marks to be among the top 3 students of the class. I had a typical Indian cricket mad childhood with great friends around. Luckily for me, my school wasn't the type of most emerging schools in India with a crazy work load on students. It allowed me to grow in a more natural way and develop my own understanding of science and life. 

After school, I went to Hyderabad, the capital city of Andhra Pradesh where I studied Intermediate at Sri Chaitanya Junior college, Kukatpally. I studied for my Bachelor of Technology degree in Electronics and Communications engineering at PRRM Engineering college, Shabad. 

Life changed dramatically after going to Denmark for higher education. I went to study Masters in Wireless engineering at the Technical University of Denmark and that was the beginning of the most interesting things to happen in my life. Then, I went to Germany to work on my master thesis at Freiberg University of Mining and Technology on use of remote sensing data in geology applications. I continued there, by starting my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Irmgard Niemeyer. I worked in the framework of GMOSS and LIMES projects on use of remote sensing data in treaty monitoring applications, and I wrote my dissertation on "Geographic object-based image analysis."

I worked with Prof. Paolo Gamba at the Remote sensing group in Department of Electronics at the University of Pavia, Italy as an "Experienced Researcher" within the framework of the Hyper-I-Net project with a Marie Curie Fellowship. I worked as a  project leader at the Signal Processing Lab., Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Unviersity of Iceland, Iceland with Prof. Jon Atli Benediktsson. Currently I am working as a researcher at the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, UAE.

Living in so many places and meeting so many people from so many countries will count as my best experiences.
