Dr. Arnab Muhuri

Dr. Arnab Muhuri joined the research group at the professorship in Hydrology and Climatology in August 2019. He was awarded the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship by the AvH Foundation, Government of the Federal Republic of Germany, to progress his research in the domain of Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere during his stay in Heidelberg.

Arnab Muhuri holds a Bachelors of Technology in Electrical Engineering, Master of Technology in Statistical Modeling of Dual-Band Quad-Pol Synthetic Aperture Radar Images, and Doctor of Philosophy in Algorithms for Remote Earth Observation of Snow Cover by Satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar Images. He was the Institute Research Fellow at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India, where he pursued research in the domain of development of algorithms for information retrieval from airborne sensor platforms and spaceborne satellite data. He was a Visiting Fellow at the University of Tokyo and Niigata University, Japan, for collaborative research on exploring machine learning technique for satellite imaging applications. Dr. Muhuri has collaboratively worked with the Space Application Center, Indian Space Research Organisation, and Defence Research & Development Organisation, Ministry of Defence, Government of India. For his exemplary research contribution in the domain of Development of Algorithms for Satellite Earth Observation Over Hindu-Kush Himalayas, he was conferred upon the Gold Medal for Excellence in PhD Research by Shri. Narendra Modi, Honourable Prime Minister of India, at the Institute Convocation of IIT Bombay.
