Mr. Muhammad Ahsan Mahboob is a Lecturer in the Institute of Geographical Information Systems (IGIS), School of Civil & Environmental Engineering (SCEE). He holds MS degree in Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System from National University of Sciences and Technology, Pakistan. He is the Gold Medalist of National University of Sciences and Technology. His areas of expertise are Geoinformatics Applications in Glaciology, Climate Change and Variability, Spatial Data Analysis and Modeling, Disaster Risk Management and Reduction. During his MS program he worked as Research Assistant on different projects including Mapping and Identification of Glaciers Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF), Modeling Glaciers Changes in Relation with Climate Variability, Hydrological Analysis of Course of Indus River, Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Natural Hazards and Risk Management, Soil Suitability Analysis, and Assessment of Spatial Variability of NDVI using MODIS products. As a Deputy Symposium Secretary he has organized an International Symposium on “Innovations and Advances in Mineral Resource Exploration, Identification, Extraction, Processing and Sustainable Mining Practices” and workshop on “Advanced Numerical Modeling Techniques for Complex Geomechanical Projects”, in which many reputable International and National researchers and scholars participated. He has participated as a speaker in many National and International Conferences and Workshops. He has also provided training to different National and International organizations including International Foundation for Electoral Systems. Along with Dr. Javed Iqbal he has also participated in a talk on the Earthquake Disaster and Risk Management in Baluchistan, Pakistan by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). He is also a member of Guidance and Evaluation Committee (GEC) of many MS students.
