Educational Background

  1. Ph.D. in Remote Sensing, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, 1994
  2. M. Tech. in Remote Sensing, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, 1987
  3. B. Tech.. in Civil Engineering, National Institute of Technology, Warangal, India, 1984

Research Interests

My research focuses in the application of Geoinformatics in environment, marine, health and agriculture fields. I also work on development of wireless GIS using the concept of Internet GIS and wireless devices such as wireless LAN, personal digital assistant (PDA) with mobile phone (GPRS). This technology has been used for real-time spatial data logger and also air-pollution monitoring.
