Research Interests:

I am passionate about employing remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) to study Earth surface dynamics at spatiotemporal scale. In past years, my major focus was on understanding the fluvial system and process aided with space technology. Expanding my research horizon to aeolian settings, I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Terrestrial Sedimentology Group where, I am working on the application of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) to study the morphological variability of Aeolian landscapes and the relationship between morphological features and climate systems on different spatial and temporal scales.
