Work Experience1. At TIFR, Bombay (prior to 1977): As part of my graduate studies towards Ph.D., application of magnetic resonance techniques for the study of cooperative phenomena in the solid state was taken up. Structural changes associated with ferroelectric phase transitions were studied (ref 23 to 26). Subsequently, my work has been in the emerging field of remote sensing, details of which are given below: 2. In the field of Remote Sensing (1977- ): Spectral Signature Studies, Crop Yield Modelling, Crop Acreage and Production Estimation, District Level Planning : Panchmahals, Major Remote Sensing Application Programmes, Scientific Coordination of Various Projects.
QualificationsM.Sc. Physics, Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, 1970. Ph.D. Physics, Bombay University (TIFR), 1977.
