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.
