M.Tech. in Remote Sensing (Bharathidasan University) Ph.D. (IIT, Powai)

Working as a Associate Professor Since March 2017 (Assistant Professor 2008-2017) in Centre for Geoinformatics, Jamsetji Tata School of Disaster Management. I have made significant contributions towards curriculum & infrastructure development, teaching, research and extension activities and developed new courses for M.Sc, M.Phil and Ph.D programmes in school as well as for institute. Establish the infrastructure facilities in the institute right from the base including space and lab setup. As co-coordinator for UGC-DRS, Rs.6.6 million worth of financial support brought to the school for basic equipment facilities. In addition to administrative work, regular teaching and guidance were made for M.Sc, M.Phil and PhD students. Handled/handling several research projects worth of Rs.4.2 millions as PI and Co-PI supported by national and international agencies. In part of extension activities, organized several Seminars, Workshops and training programmes. Centre for Geoinformatics were established in the institute apart from teaching to carry out the research in groundwater studies, disaster management plan and development, and other social sciences related aspects.

Research Experience

Study at ITC, The Netherlands (2016)

Study at ITC, The Netherlands the certificate course in Integrated Water Resource Assessments with emphasis on Surface Water. As part of this course carried out the HBV, HECHMS model for surface water resource with respect to drought and flood in both urban and rural areas

PhD at IIT Bombay (2008)

Completed my Ph.D in the field of Remote Sensing and GIS for fractured aquifer and modelling studies in the Department of Earth Sciences, IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India. The main objective of the study is to identify the fractured and deep aquifers in drought prone hard rock terrains from high resolution satellite data and ground based geophysical resistivity survey. The lineaments (fractures) were identified from satellite imagery using the conventional and image processing techniques. The geophysical resistivity survey was carried out along and across selected lineaments and the pump test was carried out in selected observation wells to get the aquifer characteristics like porosity, permeability, transmissivity, specific yield, and specific capacity and draw down. Suitable groundwater potential and artificial recharge zones were identified from weightage and ranking integration analysis.

Research work at Germany under DAAD scholarship (2007)

Carry out the groundwater aquifer modelling of Precambrian hard rock terrain at TU-Bergakademie, Freiberg, Germany. This modelling result was helped to understand the fractured aquifer behaviour with respect to the boundary condition, transmissivity (T), hydraulic conductivity (K) and also studied the sensitive behaviour of the aquifer system. Finally, carry out the groundwater prediction with respect to the variation of pumping rate and rainfall.

M.Tech Project work (2003)

As the part of M.Tech studies, carried out the Landslide hazards zonation mapping along Palani to Kodaikkanal Ghat road section using Remote sensing and GIS techniques at CERS, Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirapalli.
