I received B.E. in Aeronautical Engineering in 2009 and M.Tech. in Earth System Science and Technology in 2011 from Indian Institute of Technology-Kharagpur (India). As a recipient of the German Academic Excellence Award (DAAD), I worked on remote sensing of greenhouse gases using an extended range atmospherically emitted radiance interferometer (E-AERI) at IMK-IFU (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany). I earned a Ph.D. from Louisiana State University in 2017 where my research was focused on investigating estuarine water quality and dynamics in the northern Gulf of Mexico using field and satellite observations. I am interested in exploring new ideas to study role of particulate and dissolved organic matter in a variety of waters using remote sensing and data mining techniques.
