## Education

Daya Sagar had his school and collegiate education at St Anthony School-Visakhapatnam, Government High School-Samalkota, Government Arts College-Srikakulam, India. He graduated with BSc in 1987 from Shree Durga Prasad Saraf College of Arts and Applied Sciences-Sriramnagar, an affiliated college of Andhra University. Subsequently, he received the M.Sc and PhD degrees from the Andhra University College of Engineering-Visakhapatnam, India, in 1991 and 1994 respectively. His PhD thesis is on 'Applications of Remote Sensing, Mathematical Morphology, and Fractals to Study Certain Surface Water Bodies'.

## Career

Sagar currently is an Associate Professor at Systems Science and Informatics Unit (SSIU) of Indian Statistical Institute—Bangalore Centre, India. Earlier (1991-1998), he worked in Andhra University College of Engineering as a project assistant (1991–92) in a project 'PC-Based Image Processing System' funded by Ministry of Human Resource Development at Department of Geoengineering, Andhra University College of Engineering, a Senior Research Fellow (1992–94) of Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), a Research Associate (1994–95) of CSIR, a Research Scientist/Principal Investigator (1997-7) in a Scheme for Extramural Research for Young Scientists funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, a Senior Research Associate (1998-98) of CSIR. From 1998-2001, he worked as a Grade-A Research Scientist at the Centre for Remote Imaging Sensing and Processing (CRISP), the National University of Singapore. He was appointed Associate Professor of Faculty of Engineering and Technology, the Multimedia University, Malaysia in 2001. He was also a Deputy Chairman of Centre for Applied Electromagnetics (2003–07) at the Multimedia University, Malaysia. Since 2007, he has been an Associate Professor at Indian Statistical Institute-Bangalore centre, and since 2009, he has been overseeing as founding head of Systems Science and Informatics Unit, a unit that was established in 2009 as one of the five constituent units of Computer and Communication Sciences Division of Indian Statistical Institute.

## Research

Daya Sagar’s two-decade long unique research contributions span both basic and applied fields involves fusion of computer simulations and modeling techniques with a goal of developing cogent models in discrete space to gain a significantly good understanding of the dynamical behaviors of complex terrestrial systems (e,g: water bodies, river networks, mountain objects, folds, dunes, landscapes, rock porous medium, epidemic etc). Efficient way of understanding the dynamical behavior of many complex systems of nature, society and science is possible through data acquired at multiple spatial and temporal scales. The utility and application of such data for developing cogent domain-specific models that provide the spatiotemporal behaviors of systems of geoscientific relevance could be substantially enhanced through related technologies and spatial algorithms developed by him. His works can be singled out as significant contributions whereby the concepts stemmed out of recent theories—such as mathematical morphology, fractals, chaos, and morphometrics—have been employed to develop spatial algorithms eventually used in (i) pattern retrieval, (ii) pattern analysis, (iii) simulation and modeling, and (iv) reasoning and visualization of the spatial and/or temporal phenomena of terrestrial and GISci relevance.

There has been a long–standing interest in an analytical understanding and retrieval of unique terrestrial networks. Sagar has put forward several novel algorithms for the simultaneous extraction of channel and ridge networks by introducing geometrical vision via mathematical morphology. These algorithms not only can be generalized to solve fundamental problems that have plagued algorithms for extracting terrestrial networks for over three decades. In a series of papers he proved that one can retrieve terrestrial networks from both hilly and non-hilly regions with very high precision than that of those flow direction-based techniques. Terrestrial characterization techniques proposed during 1990-2005 yield scale-invariant power-laws that exhibit self-organizing characters. He has shown the evidence of self-organization in several terrestrial phenomena and processes via scaling laws, and has observed their limited utility in finding out basic distinction between the geomorphologic basins possessing topologically invariant networks. Based on such an observation, he has developed for the first time a methodology that yields scale-invariant but shape-dependent power-laws for better terrestrial analysis. In sequel papers, he proposed morphological techniques that provide scale-invariant but shape-dependant power-laws. He has developed Fractal-Skeletal Channel Network model that can exhibit various empirical features that the random model cannot. Through discrete simulations based on interplay between numeric and graphic analyses, he has shown various behavioral phases that terrestrial systems traverse. His comprehensive monograph (Mathematical Morphology in Geomorphology and GISci,^{[1]} CRC Press: Boca Raton, 2013, p. 546) is a must read for researchers in this area. This contribution—highlighted numerous cases of relevance to quantitative terrestrial morphology, and spatial informatics—explained via physics-based models. Of late, he developed mathematical morphology-based algorithms (i) for spatial interpolation that can solve problems, of global nature, in spatial-temporal GISci, (ii) to convert point-data into contiguous zonal map for better visualization, (iii) to solve a problem of identifying strategic location among a cluster of zones, (iv) to construct cartograms that are free from global shape-errors, and to great extent with lesser local shape and area errors, and (v) to obtain asymmetrical level of interactions between the zones via a modified gravity model that fixes long-standing problem in modeling the variable-specific interaction—closer to reality than traditional gravity-based models. His work that has spurred interdisciplinary activity has implications and has yielded insights for geosciences and spatiotemporal GISci.

His studies also show that there exist several open challenges that need to be addressed by mathematical geosciences community. One of such challenges is to understand the complexity in spatiotemporal behaviors of several terrestrial phenomena and processes via construction of process-specific *attractors* that may range from *simple* to *strange*. His research aims at effectively attaining these goals that presents many computational challenges that need development of efficient frameworks and associated algorithms. He delivers lectures on these topics widely both in India and abroad.
