Profile

Neha is an interdisciplinary environmental researcher focusing on climate services and climate impacts analysis. Her work uses multi-disciplinary methods including participatory approaches and climate data analysis to help build a more holistic understanding of potential future climate change. Neha led the analysis for the CI4Tea project and is now working on a NERC SHEAR project on ‘Improving Preparedness to Agro-Climatic Extremes in Malawi’, and Integrating Lessons on Co-Production in Climate Services.

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.
