I'm an interdisciplinary environmental researcher with experience of working in India and Africa. My research focuses on bridging the gap between information provided by the climate scientists and the user community, using participatory approaches, climate data analysis, and tailoring visualisations.

I’m currently working as a Research Fellow on ‘Climate Information for Resilient Tea Production’ project (http://www.futureclimateafrica.org/news/launch-of-climate-information-for-resilient-tea-production-ci4t-project/) which focuses on co-producing long-term future climate information for the tea sector in Malawi and Kenya.

Prior to Leeds, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, London School of Economics and Political Science, where I analysed multi-model datasets of historical and future climate projections to develop country climate briefs for Malawi and Tanzania on UMFULA project (http://www.futureclimateafrica.org/project/umfula/). I also worked for the WWF-UK examining freshwater management, riverine restoration and monitoring of river health through remote sensing techniques.

My PhD focuses on the climatic and hydrologic extremes in the Ganges basin. The research examines the potential changes in future climatic extremes in the Ganges basin. At a sub-basin scale it investigates the individual and combined impact of human interventions and future climate change on riverine environmental flow.
