Subhajit is a remote sensing scientist with the focus in geo-information science and earth observation. He has a broad interest in vegetation spectroscopy, Sun-induced Fluorescence (SIF), remote sensing for plants and crops using satellite, airborne, UAV based observations in reference to ground data.

Measuring a warming world is impossible without accurate quantification of the atmospheric carbon cycles

Prior join to the University of Southampton, Subhajit was the Iwanowska fellow at Remote Sensing Laboratories, University of Zurich, Switzerland. He completed his PhD in remote sensing and environmental engineering from Poznan University of Life Sciences, Poland. Subhajit also worked as a STSM visiting fellow at Remote Sensing Technology Institute, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Berlin, Germany. He received his diploma in geoinformation and Earth observation from IIRS (ISRO) and ITC (University of Twente) JEP. He received his master’s and bachelor’s degrees in geography from Visva-Bharati University, India. Apart from academics, Subhajit holds research experience from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, Mumbai, India and from Department of Science and Technology (DST) Govt. of West-Bengal, India as a project scientist. He is familiar with vegetation remote sensing in application for agriculture, forest, peatlands and other terrestrial domains. Subhajit uses remote sensing data to monitor environmental changes, carbon cycle and climate change.
