Research Interests

As a Geomatics Engineer and student of applied earth sciences, I love mapping and modelling spatial and spatio-temporal patterns of natural events such as landslides and identifying their cause. In most of my work, I use mathematical, AI-based, and geostatistical solutions to obtain the most optimal solution for the given sets of the problem and use that solution to predict future scenarios. Currently, I am working on the development of advanced deep learning models to investigate and estimate the impact of earthquake ground motion on landslide occurrences and their sizes.
