Crop Yield Estimation; Crop Health Monitoring - Abiotic and Biotic Stresses; Natural Hazards
Currently studying: I am involved in several projects related to application of remote sensing in agriculture such as farm and district level wheat yield estimation and prediction; detection of biotic and abiotic stresses in maize, wheat and potato using remote and proximal sensing; finding inter-relationships amongst residue burning, soil moisture, and air quality, etc. Recently, I have also worked on identification of biotic stress in cotton using Sentinel - 2 images.
What excites you about AGU?: Being an early career researcher, I am very excited to meet fellow early career researchers and learn about their work. It will help me broaden my research scope and build healthy collaborative partners for future research in my area of interests. Moreover, I would like to join several sessions which will help me build a deeper understanding of agriculture and soil sciences for food security. I have opted as a reviewer for the Outstanding Student Presentation Award. This engagement will help me develop critical skills for reviewing and analyzing students' work, which will further help me guide students as a Ph.D. advisor in the upcoming years. Furthermore, I am excited to help the students through Mentoring 365 program.
