About me

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Hydrology of Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. I am interested in interdisciplinary research and teaching to understand the hydroclimatological processes and their connections to the natural-human world.

I have a B.Tech. (Bachelor of Technology) degree in Civil Engineering from NIT Hamirpur and a M.Tech. (Master of Technology) degree in Water Resources Engineering and Management from IIT Guwahati. During my Ph.D. at IIT Guwahati, I worked on a resilience-based approach to examine the response of terrestrial ecosystems to droughts. I worked at Penn State University as a postdoctoral scholar in Multiscale Hydrologic Processes and Intelligence (MHPI) group. I have also worked at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), USA and McGill University, Canada under Water Advanced Research and Innovation (WARI) and Shastri Indo-Canadian Institute (SICI) fellowships, respectively.

My research aims at advancing the understanding of hydro-climatology and its interaction with other natural-human systems. Specifically, my research work has focused on the resilience analysis of ecohydrological systems at different spatial scales, hydrological modeling, and climate change impact assessment. I utilize remote sensing dataset and machine learning tools to solve the hydrological problems such as risk and resilience analysis, hydrologic predictions.
