Professor Kundu, is a British Council Fellow and has done his MSc in GIS from University of Leicester, UK and his MScTech in Applied Geology from IIT-ISM Dhanbad. He is an alumnus of Ravenshaw University (then Ravenshaw College) having done his BSc (Honours) in Geology with distinction. He was awarded his PhD in Geology from Utkal University for his thesis on “GIS based Techniques for Quantitative Seafloor Geomorphology”. He has over 20 years of professional experience in Industry and has served for MNCs like Fugro, Reliance E&P and BHP Billiton. His previous role before joining Ravenshaw as Professor was at the National University of Singapore where has taught Exploration Geosciences at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and GIS, Remote Sensing and Geoscience at the Department of Geography. Professor Kundu’s interest includes research on Data Science applications GIS in Environmental, Energy and Sedimentary Geosciences where he exploits the potential of Remote Sensing and Geospatial tools (GIS). He has authored four books, several publications and has delivered keynotes at several international conferences.
