Divyesh Varade has been working towards his Ph.D. degree at the Civil Engineering Department, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK), Kanpur, India. He is a Sr. Student Research Associate at the Geoinformatics specialization, IITK. He received his M.Sc. degree in Earth Oriented Space Science and Technology (ESPACE) with specialization in remote sensing, from the Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany in 2011 and engineering degree in electronics and communications engineering from the Rajiv Gandhi Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya, Bhopal, India, in 2008. He has completed his M.Sc. thesis with the Remote Sensing Technology Institute, Photogrammetry and Image Analysis, Institute of Remote Sensing (IMF) at the German Aerospace Center, (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Munich. 
His research involves mapping, characterization of snow cover using multi-sensor remote sensing data. He is predominantly working towards modeling of snow wetness using optical and SAR data. His research interests involve estimation of snow geophysical parameters with optical imagery and active microwave remote sensing and SAR polarimetry, image processing, pattern recognition, automatic detection and mapping of snow cover.
