Dr. Sushil Lamichhane (GIS Specialist)
Sushil works as a GIS Specialist in our mapping team. He has a decade of experience working with geospatial data in different aspects of agriculture and natural resources. He did his BSc in Agriculture from Tribhuvan University, Nepal; MSc in Applied GIS from Kingston University, UK and is about to complete his PhD in Digital Soil Mapping from the University of New England, Australia. His special interests include digital soil mapping, remote sensing, geostatistics, machine learning, soil survey and soil mapping. His current research focus is to improve the prediction of Soil Organic Carbon (SOC) stocks using various environmental covariates in the rangelands of Australia so that the cost of sampling soils could be minimised and the variance of measured carbon be reduced so as to have a maximum possible creditable change in the SOC stocks.
