Rajesh Bahadur Thapa


Beyond the extensive experiences in synthetic aperture radar, optical, and LiDAR data processing and analysis for various applications, I have skills in quantitative and qualitative data analysis, GIS analysis, spatial analysis and modeling. In recent years, I focus on tropical forests monitoring, carbon stocks estimation, MRV/REDD+ development, deforestation modeling, urban growth modeling, land use and land cover change analysis, and disasters monitoring. I also deliver capacity building trainings on SAR data analysis. My research interests include retrieval of forest carbon stocks from SAR and lidar data, land use–land cover classification, spatial analysis and modeling, multicriteria decisions analysis, linking policies to landscape patterns and process, and remote sensing applications on natural disasters. I have conducted many field works in Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, and Indonesia.
