My research focuses on developing tools to study the Food-Energy-Water (FEW) nexus (link). I worked with Dr. Sankar Arumugam as a PhD student in the Climate, Hydrology and Water Resources: Modeling and Synthesis group (CHWR) at North Carolina State University. Previously, I have worked with Dr. Dhanya C T at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India on non-stationary drought analysis and hydrological modeling (link). I completed my master's on regional drought analysis from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), India with Dr. V V Srinivas and bachelor's in civil engineering from IIT Roorkee.
