Research Focus, 🌍🛰️

Dr. Raj Kumar Singh’s research spans diverse domains, with a primary focus on geoinformatics, agroforestry, and environmental science. His notable contributions include groundbreaking studies such as “Fireworks induced particle pollution: A spatio-temporal analysis” (2016) and “Wintertime characteristics of aerosols over middle Indo-Gangetic Plain: Vertical profile, transport, and radiative forcing” (2017), both widely cited works in atmospheric science. Additionally, his research extends to digital diffusion for inclusive agroecosystems and leveraging geo big data for accelerating agroecological intensification in drylands. Notably, he explores automated crop type mapping using dynamic time warping, offering insights crucial for enhanced food and nutritional security.
