Over the past ten years, I have been involved with research work focusing on Climate Change impacts on Key Ecosystems such as Northern High Latitude Ecosystems and Coastal Ecosystems in India.  I am driven by the overarching research objective to understand the impact of climate change on ecosystem structure and functions across multiple spatial and temporal scales. The methods I use in my research involves multi-scale remote sensing, geospatial modeling, field observations and various prototype and open source tools that can handle large amount of data. 

I spent about two semesters working as a full-time research scientist within the Center for Urban Science and Progress at New York University during 2015-2016. This excellent opportunity provided me exposure in Urban Science domain, specifically in Urban Informatics working with a range of datasets produced by different agencies in New York City to develop solutions for sustainable Urban Operation. I was also involved in student teaching/ student supervision and led a team of Graduate students to Singapore in an academic trip to meet with various Govt.,private and educational institutes working in the broader Urban Science domain. 

My current work focuses on understanding long-term coastal dynamics and its relations to climatic drivers using high resolution satellite data and climate records in the Indian sub-continent. 

In general, I am strongly interested in Citizen Science, student mentoring and training. I have been involved with this area through various activities in collaboration with colleagues from national and international organisations.
