Dr. Ram L. Ray is an associate professor at Prairie View A&M University, USA. He also worked as a research scientist at Prairie View A&M University for six years. Dr. Ray obtained his PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of New Hampshire in 2009, his MS in Soil Science from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Ghent University, Belgium in 2004, and his BS in Civil Engineering from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal in 1993. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California (UC) and the San Diego State University and UC San Diego, USA, from 2009 to 2013. From 1996 to 2002, Dr. Ray worked as a civil infrastructure engineer for the Government of Nepal, and from 1993 to 1996 he worked as a civil engineer TAEC Consult P. Ltd. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineering (ASCE), Soil Science Society of America (SSSA), and the American Geophysical Union (AGU). Dr. Ray’s research interests include natural hazard (landslide and flood) and risk analysis using GIS/remote sensing and spatial statistical analysis, fluvial geomorphology, flood risk analysis, flood hazards, soil water dynamics, water resource management, hydrologic modeling, remote sensing, climate change, carbon sequestration, and precision agriculture. He has several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters on landslide hazards, flood prediction, soil moisture dynamics, carbon sequestration, drought, precision agriculture, climate, and land use/land cover change studies using remotely sensed data, model, and field experiments. He is editor and editorial board member of several journals including Remote Sensing in Earth System Sciences, Remote Sensing, Agronomy, Civil Engineering, Constructions, and others.
