There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where non intrudes, By the deep sea and music in its roar, I love not man the less, but nature more. ~Lord Byron

Personal Statement
My research interests evolve around Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing applications to environmental science research. My PhD work looks at urban forestry and related ecosystem services. I am a firm believer in the transformative prowess of education and echo the same sentiments as Tata Nelson Mandela when he said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Graduate Research Topic
A multi-objective decision support system for urban trees

Personal Statement
After graduation I started working at an Engineering consultancy company as an Environmental engineer. My job comprised the design of underground water utility pressure and gravity networks. During my three year in the job, I grew a decent technical background in the field of hydraulics in addition to being exposed to how large scale projects are being handled and managed. On another note, I have always been interested in social sciences and policy making. Currently, I am trying to focus my research towards areas of overlap between my technical engineering background and my interest in environmental policy issues.
