Dr. S. K. Srivastav started his professional career with National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Hyderabad (India) as Scientist in June, 1990. He is currently working as Scientist 'G' and Group Director, Geospatial Technology and Outreach Programme (GT&OP) Group at Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), ISRO, Dehradun. He is also the Lead, Working Group on Capacity Building of ISRO/DOS; Dy. Project Director (Training), ASEAN-India Space Cooperation Programme; Associate Programme Director, Programme Steering Group on Capacity Building: Human Resource & Academia Interface of ISRO/DOS; Co-Chair, International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Working Group V/6: Distance Learning - Education and Training Services.

His research interests are in the fields of geologic remote sensing, groundwater hydrology, land-use and land-cover change analysis and modeling, and satellite-based nightlight data analysis. He has executed and is associated with a number of research and operational projects and programmes on remote sensing applications. A few important national mission projects in which he has contributed include: Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission, National Geomorphological and Lineament Mapping, Land Use and Land Cover Dynamics in Indian River Basins, National Urban Information System. His contribution as a founding core team member of the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission towards developing and designing the methodology for preparation of ground water prospects maps is noteworthy. After moving to IIRS in 2001, he has also contributed significantly towards building human capacity in the area of geospatial technology and its applications.

He has over 55 scientific publications in journals and proceedings and many technical reports to his credit. He has also supervised the dissertation of many students at Masters and PhD level. He is the recipient of P.R. Pisharoty Memorial Award from Indian Society of Remote Sensing, and four ISRO Team Excellence Awards for his contribution in Rajiv Gandhi National Drinking Water Mission, National Geomorphological and Lineament Mapping Mission, National Urban Information System, and Space based Information Support for Decentralised Planning.
