Param is a recent graduate from an undergraduate program in Computer Sciences from University of Wisconsin-Madison with an avid interest in spatial problems. He began working with the State Cartographer’s Office in Summer 2022 on an ecological analysis project developing a reproducible methodology to analyze habitat health, following a project finishing development of a front-end part and open sourcing the back-end part of an application for the Statewide Parcels Initiative, and is now working on a hydrogeological project for recommendations and planning for vulnerable culverts across the state. Param enjoys geosophy and all ancillary areas of thought that follow from engineering and applications up to proofs, concepts, and mythological aesthetics. He also enjoys track and field and calisthenics activities as well as games that derive from them like frisbee or disc oriented ones.
