Khila R. Dahal is a geographer with specialization in computational GIScience. Before joining the Department of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University as a visiting assistant professor from the Fall of 2017, Khila worked as a postdoctoral scientist at Boise State University, Boise, Idaho, and at The New School, New York. He has a PhD degree in Geography (from Texas State University) and a Master's degree in Environmental Policy (from Michigan Technological University). His research interests include urban sustainability, risks and hazards, spatial modeling, geocomputation, future scenario modeling, and GIScience in general.
