Subhajit Bandopadhyay

Organisation: University of Southampton

Position: Research Fellow


Subhajit is a remote sensing scientist with the focus in geo-information science and earth observation. He has a broad interest in vegetation spectroscopy, Sun-induced Fluorescence (SIF), remote sensing for plants and crops using satellite, airborne, UAV  based observations in reference to ground data.

Prior to joining the University of Southampton, Subhajit was the Iwanowska fellow at Remote Sensing Laboratories, University of Zurich, Switzerland. He completed his PhD in remote sensing and environmental engineering from Poznan University of Life Sciences, Poland. Subhajit also worked as a STSM visiting fellow at Remote Sensing Technology Institute, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Berlin, Germany. He received his diploma in geoinformation and Earth observation from IIRS (ISRO) and ITC (University of Twente) JEP. He received his master’s and bachelor’s degrees in geography from Visva-Bharati University, India. Subhajit holds research experience from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, Mumbai, India and from Department of Science and Technology (DST) Govt. of West-Bengal, India as a project scientist. He is extremely familiar with vegetation remote sensing in application for agriculture, forest, peatlands and other terrestrial domains. Subhajit uses remote sensing data to monitor and map local to regional intra Caribbean and West African Sargassum flows.
