I graduated from VJTI, India with a BTech in Information Technology and worked as a Software Engineer before pursuing graduate school. I received an MS followed by a PhD from the University of Arizona in Watershed Management & Ecohydrology. I was introduced to GIS during graduate school and started working as a GIS Application Developer and Analyst. My graduate research focused on developing and using the AGWA (Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment) Urban tool to model urban hydrology and green infrastructure. I have almost 10 years of programming experience in various languages.
