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.
