Brief description about me
I’m a highly driven individual with extensive GIS and Remote Sensing experience acquired principally in the Geospatial industry through research and academics. Following completion of my Master of Science degree in Geoinformatics (which included a couple of years in New Delhi after my graduation in Geography (Honours) from Delhi University; I started my career at Digital Globe Inc, New Delhi; which have worked my way up to become a GeoEPC Advisor at GeoEPC Management Advisors incubated under Science and Technology Park, Pune, Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. I believe I combine a high level of commercial awareness with a commitment to advisory services - which helps me to achieve profitable growth and a great learning experience. Overall I have more than two years of technical experience and one plus year on advisory. I work in a team of more than 10 peoples including scientists from Science and Technology Park, Pune and other prestigious organizations, who are in our GeoEPC advisory board.  I enjoy being part of, as well as managing, motivating, training and developing, a successful team and I thrive in highly pressurized and challenging working environments.

My view on India technical development
Well, I agree that we do have technical talent in India, but do they stay in India and work for India’s development? I am not certain. No youth in this generation is ready to take risk in India and fight against corruption. Besides, in many cases the best talents don’t get chance to work because of reservations in job, education, lack of infrastructure & opportunities etc. Apart from this, the finest talents went abroad for opportunities and “brain drain” happens – that’s very obvious! Unless and until, we consider only ‘merit’ in all cases; be it politics, education, jobs etc, we can never develop ourselves and make it a mark at the international front.
My goal
For the next five years, my prime goal would be, to be an expert in my domain and learn as much as I can and apply it for the development of our planet.
Advice to professionals
For starters, I will say “learn as much as u can” and don’t repent if you start with a low salary, aim high than your reach and never miss any opportunity because “Sky is the limit”
Advice to students
Asking for help when it is needed is a sign of maturity, not weakness. Be proactive.  Research and explore as much as you can; be it software, data or applications and have fun in exploring this wonderful G-technology that has really transformed the world. Be updated and change accordingly
