Ankita Saxena

Ankita Saxena is a Computer Engineering graduate and did her Ph.D in Land use/Land Cover Change and Urban Growth Modelling using Geospatial Techniques and Cellular Automata from Malaviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT) Jaipur, India, in 2019. She has worked as a Research Associate (RA) in research projects entitled “Climate Change Impact Studies for Rajasthan” and “Resource Mapping of Earthquake Engineering Faculties in Engineering/Architecture Colleges” at MNIT Jaipur (India), from 30-Nov-2018 to 27-May-2021. She is working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research-Atmospheric Environmental Research (IMK-IFIJ), KIT-Campus Alpin, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, since 01-06-2021. She is working on the integration of agent-based and Cellular Automata modelling techniques for LULC change and urban growth modelling. LULC based scenario modelling for planning and site selection of possible climate change adaptations.

Research Interests

  1. Geo-spatial data handling, processing and analysis
  2. LULC change and urban growth modelling
  3. Modelling of spatial phenomena for different applications e.g., disease hotspot, scenario modelling, vector-borne disease, ecological modelling, and crime analysis,
  4. Multicriteria evaluation and decision making
