Dr. Singh’s research and teaching practices stem from the question, how can the Earth system support future land conversion and accelerating natural resource consumption under a changing climate? As a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Geospatial Analytics at North Carolina State University, Dr. Singh quantified invasive plants using time-series remote sensing, developed eco-hydrological models for water-stressed regions to understand how agricultural intensification and land conversion affect the availability of water resources and develop research based on drone-captured data and applications to help address issues of localized land conversions. He used multi-sensor data integration methods for generating time-series land conversion data to quantify changes in agricultural and natural resources. His work has been published in multiple high-profile journals with international recognition and readership. Before his academic research pursuits, Dr. Singh worked in India as GIS Specialist at the International Resources Group, and asa project officer for the United Nations Development Programme. He actively pursues several national and international service activities.
Dr. Singh has more than 20 years of experience in remote sensing data acquisition, processing, and analysis using proprietary software and scientific programming languages, including the applications of LiDAR and drones to measure, map, and model land characteristics and resources.
