Haroon Stephen is an Assistant Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Director GIS and Remote Sensing Core Lab at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. His research is in areas of Remote Sensing, GIS, and GPS applications. Ongoing research interests include applications of remote sensing and GIS technologies to water resource mapping; drought study; and climate change study. Stephen is presently involved in several Federal and State sponsored research projects involving geospatial data research and applications. He is also developing a geovisualization facility at UNLV that will provide state-of-the-art visualization for the research and educational needs of UNLV and the region.
His research involves development of Remote Sensing and GIS technologies and their application to Natural Resource Mapping. This includes modeling of microwave remote sensing measurements of backscatter and radiometric temperature to understand spatial and temporal interconnections of geomorphology, vegetation, hydrology, ecology, and water resources.
