About me

My research focuses on developing tools to study the Food-Energy-Water (FEW) nexus. I work with Dr. Sankar Arumugam in the Climate, Hydrology and Water Resources: Modeling and Synthesis Group (CHWR). I am developing a hydro-economic model for the Flint River Basin in Georgia, USA to study the regional FEW nexus.

I have worked with Dr. Dhanya C T at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi on non-stationary drought analysis and hydrological modeling (link). I completed my masters from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), India under the supervision of Dr. V V Srinivas on regional drought analysis.
