My scientific interest is in studying human-environment interactions using geoinformation science and earth observation. To provide a comprehensive understanding, I prefer to use a holistic research approach that combines quantitative and qualitative techniques.
During my MSc, I investigated the predictive capability and utilisation of landslide susceptibility maps using techniques such as extensive systematic literature analysis, interviews with stakeholders (users and producers), deep learning (for landslide mapping), advanced GIS, and statistical analysis. The research findings can be used directly by landslide scientists/modelers, local urban planning departments, and local governments, among others. You can find my thesis here: Pareek_MSc_ITC
In the future, I would like to investigate the implications of natural hazard modelling accuracy and utility on major urban planning projects in order to evaluate the suitability of these models.
