Biography

I grew up in different parts of India before commencing my college education in Delhi. I first earned a Bachelor of Science (with honors) in Chemistry at the University of Delhi (2010-2013), and then a Masters degree in Environmental Studies at TERI School of Advanced Studies. My research interests lie at the intersection of climate change, society and governance. Within these broad domains, I expect my doctoral work at ASU to be centered on questions concerning resilience, capacity building and decision-making, as they relate to climate change adaptation. Outside of sustainability and climate change, I enjoy photography and dancing.

Research Assistant Experience

  • I have been a RA (or a 'Project Associate' as the position was called) at IIT Delhi for two and a half years. I worked on a review paper with the aim of understanding the landscape of climate adaptation action in India and identifying key gaps in policy planning and implementation over the last decade.
  • A second, more empirically oriented project, that I am involved in looks at exploring response mechanisms of mountain farmers in the presence of multiple, interacting stressors.
