Biodata: 
Mandyam Bhoolokam Rajani is an associate professor in the School of Humanities, National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS), Bangalore, India. Her research interests focus on landscape archaeology and geo-spatial analysis for cultural heritage: by using space/air based remote sensing (RS) images she analyses Earth’s surface and subsurface features, obtaining information that improves the understanding of the cultural heritage of an area. She complements remote sensing studies with GPS survey, and Geographic Information System (GIS) technologies. Rajani earned her PhD from the University of Mysore, in 2011, working in the field of space-based archaeological investigations. Her findings and discoveries helped restore and manage many archeological sites, providing information about environmental and cultural conditions of the past, and about the impact of climate change. She received the Young Geospatial Scientist Award in 2011, and the P.R. Pisharoty Memorial Award in 2019 from the Indian Society of Remote Sensing (ISRS). She was elected to the Indian National Young Academy of Science (INYAS), in 2018, and has been a TEDx speaker: shorturl.at/oAX25.
