GIS

I was born and raised in the western part of India in a state called Gujarat. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering I worked for various environmental engineering firms for few years and soon realized that my passion lies in research and teaching. And the pursuit for my passion brought me to Dallas where I received my Master’s degree in GIS. Thereafter I moved to Wisconsin where I pursued a doctoral degree in the department of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. After graduating in 2009, I worked in the Department of Geography at Central Connecticut State University for a year. I joined Sam Houston State University in Fall 2010.

My research interest lies in the Social Construction of GIS and I primarily focus on the process of GIS spatial knowledge production by local government agencies. I have worked with Dane county officials in Wisconsin to explore the history of their GIS usage and its repercussions on their contemporary GIS knowledge production. I mainly use qualitative research methods in my work. Currently my research examines the process of GIS knowledge construction in the non-western context where I explore GIS use by district level administrators in India.
