Hello, my name is Shobhana Lakhera I have started my PhD at the Risk Group, Institute of Earth Sciences, UNIL. I have a background of Remote Sensing and GIS with specialization in Geosciences. For my PhD I am working on utilizing the satellite based interferometric techniques for analyzing slope failures in the Indian Garhwal Himalayan region. During my PhD I will also focus on modelling and simulation of complex events and impacts of climatic variables on slope failures. I am also keen to acquire knowledge on LiDAR based remote sensing techniques.
