Kamini Yadav is a PhD student in supervision of Dr. Russell Congalton at the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, University of New Hampshire since August 2013. Her research is focused on global cropland mapping and its uncertainty analysis. She is also interested to predict the dynamics of cropland and its linkage with human interaction, climate change and water demand to serve as a solution for food security.
She received B.Sc. Degree (Zoology) from University of Delhi, India in 2008 and M.Sc. (Geoinformatics) from TERI University, Delhi (2010). She has experience in land cover change analysis and impact of crop water demand on water resources.
She worked as a Research Scientist in Indian Space Research Organization for a period of 3 years (2010-2013) under the project India-WRIS. She has contributed in database organization and creation of thematic layers of water resource assets in India.
