Assistant Professor,
Department of Natural Resources

Dr. Neeti is a Geographer who specializes in remote sensing and Geographic Information Science. Her research interests focus upon the development and application of spatio-temporal techniques to the study of physical environment. Much of her work has focused on developing improved algorithms that enable the mapping and monitoring of forest carbon, land cover, and land cover change at regional and global scale and analyzing associated uncertainties. She has been in the field of remote sensing and GIS for almost 16 years and has worked at Indian Space Research Organization, Clark Labs, Goddard Space Flight Center, Boston University and Woods Hole Research Center. She has published several research articles in international journals. She has been teaching basic and advanced level Geoinformatics courses, Python and scripting in Google Earth Engine for remote sensing and GIS analysis,

Dr. Neeti is also interested in big data analytics and artificial intelligence. She has given lectures and conducted training programme on data mining and machine learning algorithms using R.
