About Me

My overarching research interests involve understanding the dynamics and interactions of geographic processes, with special focus on urban development and interventions to adapt to extreme events. In operationalizing my research, I primarily rely on earth observation-based techniques to measure variables, and geospatial analysis along with artificial intelligence to explore patterns in space and time.

In the department of PGM, my major focuses are: (1) mapping urban morphology, and (2) understanding environmental risk of deprived groups.
