Welcome to the Science Summit at UNGA76, a major contribution to advancing Science for the UN SDGs. Online from 14- September - 5 October 2021.
ISC will organise the second edition of the UNGA76 Science Summit around the 76th United Nations General Assembly (SSUNGA76) in September 2021. The objective of the virtual meeting will be to raise awareness of the role and contribution of science to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It will demonstrate initiatives that provide models for global science mechanisms and activities in support of the SDGs, particularly in science infrastructure and capacity building. Science is and will enable sustainable economic, environmental, and societal development. Science is more than a funding prioritisation exercise: science is impacting all areas of policy-making and is playing a more critical role in how policy objectives are achieved and the consequent benefit to people everywhere, including responses to global challenges.
Engagement with policy leadership is more important than ever: UNGA76 is a unique forum for science to demonstrate how policy and political leadership can benefit from innovation. Central to this is the role of nonstate actors and the multilateral fora, which increasingly determine how priorities are set. Science needs to be part of this dialogue and inform outputs through thought leadership, evidence, insights, analysis, and innovation.

Contact Me

I am a Researcher at the Bonn Alliance for Sustainability Research. Prior to this position, I was a Marie Curie Researcher (European Commission) on the topic of “Enabling Open smart cities” and also worked as a Software engineer in a leading global geospatial company.

I hold a PhD in Geoinformatics from the University of Münster in consortial with the University of Jaume I, Spain and IMS Nova, Portugal on the topic of “Spatial modelling of air pollution for open smart cities”.

My research interests include Geohealth and geomedicine, One Health, geospatial technologies for the city, Urban analytics, sustainable and low-cost solution development, citizen science, AI and ML applications for sustainable and improved quality of life.

My recent scientific contributions involve the development of geospatial optimisation methods for optimal placement of air quality sensors to monitor high-resolution air quality information using official as well as citizen participation approach. Furthermore, I also proposed approaches to bring together private-public stakeholders for intracity air pollution monitoring. I also demonstrated a low-cost solution to overcome the limited traffic data problem by utilises WiFi signals and machine learning algorithms for traffic monitoring.

In my future research, I will focus on understanding how digitalisation has contributed to the sustainable development to understand better the requirement of the future digitalisation workflows to help to achieve a sustainable and safe.
