Prof. Prasad Pathak

Ph.D. in Geography from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA; M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences from Pune University; B.Sc. in Microbiology from Pune University; Diploma in Geoinformatics from Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehradun


Prasad Pathak is a physical geographer with specialization in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems. Using these techniques Prasad studies various environmental phenomena. For his doctoral work, Prasad studied glacial lakes in arctic Alaska for changes in their trophic structure and its links with surrounding landscapes. He completed his doctoral degree from University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), NC, USA.

Prasad has also worked with Center for GIScience at UNCG as a post-doctoral fellow where he was involved in various research projects, development of research proposals, preparing manuscripts, and developing and conducting GIS training workshops.

In India, Prasad has worked with many reputed institutes (government and private). He has also worked at headquarters of ESRI (Environmental Systems Research Institute) in California, USA as an intern.
