Geosciences Student Conducts Geospatial Analysis Overseas
Megha Shrestha, a native of Nepal and student in the Department of Geosciences, spent her summer on a three-month internship in Freiberg, Germany. As one of the 25 Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) professional alumni for 2018, she worked for a mining company, and analyzed and scripted geospatial works. This opportunity was provided by the German Academic Exchange Service or DAAD.
“From work to travel to food to meeting new people, there was a new memory every single day,” explains Shrestha. In addition to her position in Germany over the summer, she also traveled to historical cities throughout Europe including Leipzig, Chemnitz, Heidelberg, Munster, Frankfurt, Prague, Budapest and Amsterdam.
Shrestha is aspiring to be a Ph.D. candidate in the Earth System Science at Auburn University. She says that she “is looking forward to working in the research and development sector where she can work towards urban sustainability using cutting-edge geospatial technologies especially in the field of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS) and programming.”
