PhD dandidate, faculty of geo-information science and earth observation, University of Twente

I am an urban planner trained at the International Institute of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC, now part of University of Twente), the Netherlands and School of Planning and Architecture (SPA), Delhi. I also hold a Master’s degree in Geography from the University of Delhi. My interest lies in exploring landscapes – both built and natural – to link the present to the past. Most recently, it has translated into GIS mapping and designing of a tree database around the Humayun’s Tomb Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) in New Delhi. In the past, he has provided planning/GIS support to Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the World Bank, and NGOs such Centre for Urban and Regional Excellence (CURE) and Forum for Organized Resource Conservation and Enhancement (FORCE) on issues centered on sustainable urban habitat. He plans to delve deeper into the use of digital technologies to visually depict the varied narratives that have and continue to make the urban.
