Background     

Dr. Bhatia was born on 10th October 1982 in New Delhi, India. In 2003, he received a diploma in Electrical Engineering from Aryabhatt Polytechnic (now Aryabhatt Institute Of Technology), Delhi. In 2006, he received his engineering degree in computer science (IT) from Indraprastha University (GGIPU), Delhi. He received his M.Sc. degree in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation in 2010 from Department of Earth Observation Science (ITC), Enschede, The Netherlands in collaboration with Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (ISRO), India. In the meantime, he worked as a software developer in the period of 2006—2008 and as a catastrophic modeller in the period of 2010—2011. He then pursued his Ph.D. research in Remote Sensing from ITC, University of Twente, Netherlands. The Ph. D. was a collaboration between Flemish Institute of Technological Research (VITO), Belgium, and Department of Earth Observation Science, Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation of the University of Twente, The Netherlands.

Research interest

His industrial and research experiences in remote sensing image processing include deep learning (AI), land-use/land-cove change, uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, estimation/optimization of atmospheric condition parameters, Geo-spatial modelling. His recent research areas include deforestation modelling with spatial data and socio-economic indicators, and time series analysis.
