Prof. Kaushik Gopalan is Associate Professor – Computer Science at FLAME University. He completed his MS & PhD from the University of Central Florida, USA in the field of Electrical Engineering in 2005 and 2008 respectively. He has completed B.E. degree in Electronics and Communication from the RV College of Engineering, Bangalore in 2003.

From 2008 to 2011, he was a Researcher with the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center, University of Maryland, College Park. He served as a Scientist with the Space Applications Centre - ISRO, Ahmedabad from 2011-2020.

Kaushik’s research has involved applying statistical analysis and methods to solve a variety of problems in the field of Satellite Remote Sensing, with a focus on the retrieval of geophysical parameters from satellite data; conceptually a “statistical inversion” problem where unmeasurable independent variables are inferred using measurable dependent variables. He has contributed to NASA’s Global Precipitation Mission and Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission, and to ISRO’s Megha - Tropiques, INSAT-3DR, SCATSAT-1 and NAVIC missions in various capacities.
