Waqas Qazi, PhD


I received my PhD from University of Colorado, Boulder, USA, in 2013 under a Fulbright fellowship. At CU-Boulder, I studied at the Dept. of Aerospace Engineering Sciences, and the focus area for my PhD was Remote Sensing, Earth and Space Science. Currently, I'm an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Space Science at Institute of Space Technology (IST), Islamabad, Pakistan. My general expertise is in Remote Sensing where I have worked with various remote sensing datasets through my career, while for my PhD thesis I specifically worked on Remote Sensing using SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) and Oceanography, working extensively on development of techniques to measure ocean surface currents from space-borne SAR intensity images and interferometric data.

I am a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Geoscience & Remote Sensing, Forest Ecosystems, and Journal of African Earth Sciences. I am an alumnus of Pakistan National Physics Talent Contest (NPTC), an alumnus of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings, a Fulbright alumnus, and the Pakistan National Point of Contact for Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC). I've served as mentor in the NASA International Space App Challenge Islamabad events in April 2015 and April 2016.

I blog at EarthEnable ( on topics related to remote sensing, earth observation, scientific programming, and academic publishing.

Research Interests: Remote sensing, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery and interferometric data processing & analysis, Visible/Infrared/High-resolution satellite image processing & analysis, Oceanography, Earth system study and modelling, LIDAR data processing and analysis, Scientific programming.
