I joined the Watershed Science and Modelling Laboratory (WSML) as an Overseas Visiting Doctoral Fellow in February 2022. In the year 2019, I started my Ph.D. journey at the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Indore. My doctoral research focuses on investigation of climate extremes and their implications on catchment hydrology. At WSML, I am working on the future flood risk assessment using process-based models in Indian river basins.

Research Areas: Climate extremes, Hydrological modelling and Socio-hydrology
