I teach Introduction to Geographic Information Systems, Data Acquisition and Management, Remote Sensing, and Spatial Problems and Analysis courses. In addition to the traditional lecturing style in my classes, I emphasize on hands-on experience with a wide range of geospatial data analysis in ArcGIS and ERDAS Imagine platforms and field experience when possible.

I am an engaging educator and researcher with experience in geospatial science, land use dynamics and plant ecology. I completed M.Sc. in Botany (Plant Systematics) and M.A. in Sociology from Tribhuvan University (Nepal), M.S. in Geoscience along with Graduate GIS Certificate from Western Kentucky University, and Ph.D. in Natural Resources Management (minor in GIS) from Texas Tech University. I spent multiple years working on ecology, conservation, and geospatial science related projects in several regions of Nepal, New Mexico and Texas. I apply multiple techniques in GIS and Remote Sensing such as geodatabase design and analysis, hyperspectral, multispectral and high-spatial resolution image analysis, geostatistics, and spatial modeling. I welcome collaborators and students who are interested in GIS and remote sensing applications in several disciplines including natural resource sciences, geography, geosciences, and environmental, biological, social and computer sciences.
