About me

About Me

I am a passionate Remote Sensing Scientist and a GIS Analyst with an extensive 8+ years of experience in the ESRI’s Enterprise ArcGIS stack and product architecture who helps companies deliver optimum GIS solutions at a reduced cost. I use my GIS expertise to solve the complex geographical problems using tools like ArcGIS Desktop (Spatial and Network Analysis, Model Builder, Toolbox), ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Online, and QGIS..

I am always excited to share the expertise that I possess in the following areas: Geographic Information Science (GIS), Remote Sensing, Google Earth Engine, Geospatial Data Analysis, and much more. I will be posting the tutorials on how things are done on these topics. Besides, I will post some hacks and tricks to get done quickly and smartly.

Current Status

Currently, I am working as a Remote Sensing Scientist at KBR, Inc. Contractor to the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science Center (EROS)

At EROS center, I work with the Science Division Team of the Technical Services Support Contract (TSSC) where I utilize numerous Geographic Information System (GIS) software, scripting techniques, statistics, data mining, and/or modeling methodology to produce, manipulate, analyze, and interpret geospatial datasets that contribute to the science focus area. As an integral part of this team of highly talented scientists, technical specialists, and software engineers, I contribute to ecosystem dynamics and land cover monitoring projects and support the dynamic science and technical requirements of our USGS Customer.

My Background

Before landing to USGS EROS center, I was a Graduate Teaching Assistant and a Research Assistant in South Dakota State University. As a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Geography at South Dakota State University, I taught more than 100 students, worked closely with them to help them excel with an “Ace”. The teaching labs include Spatial Database, GIS Raster and Vector Modelling, and Data Creation and Integration. In addition, I provided technical support for ESRI software to the students, delivered pre-lab talks, demos and trainings on using ArcGIS in problem solving. 

As a Research Assistant at  Department of Geospatial Science Center of Excellence, South Dakota State University, I conducted scientific image analysis for projects requiring change detection, spectral analysis, and classification and established familiarity with characteristics and applications of instruments such as LIDAR, MODIS, VIIRS, ASTER and Landsat.
