I am an ecological physicist who seeks to understand terrestrial ecological processes from a physicist’s perspective.
Electromagnetic (light) and mechanical (sound) waves serve as useful means of understanding ecological processes and characterising. In ecological parlance, sound-based studies translate as acoustic ecology. I have integrated hyperspectral remote sensing with vegetation and colour sciences to lay the foundation of ‘floral radiometry’. An important research focus of Floral Radiometry is to decipher the language of colour in nature.
Both the streams of investigations scales from individual to landscape levels and encompasses autonomous sensor-based data collection and analytics.
