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 Earth observation algorithms. He was awarded the DST-JSPS Grant and was a Visiting Fellow at the University of Tokyo. 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 research contribution in the domain of development of satellite-based Earth observation algorithms, he was conferred upon the Excellence in PhD Research Award by Shri. Narendra Modi, the Honorable Prime Minister of India, at the 56th Institute Convocation of IIT Bombay. He is a Visiting Scientist at the Centre d’Etudes Spatiales de la Biosphére (CESBIO) and Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), Toulouse, France where he works with the CNES high-performance computing facility.
