I am a PhD student at the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University.
I am interested in understanding hydroclimatic extremes in a changing climate and how it impacts human systems.
At Cornell, I work with Prof. Angeline Pendergrass as part of the Precipitation and Climate Research group.
Prior to joining Cornell, I graduated from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar with an M.Tech in Earth System Sciences
and have also completed an M.Sc in Applied Geology from Pondicherry University. I have also received training from the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS-ISRO)
on applying Earth Observation techniques to understand the atmosphere and climate.
My recent work focuses primarily on various climate extremes over India and how it has changed over time.
Compound or concurrent extremes are particularly important as their impacts are often greater than that of the individual extremes
