I completed my Bachelors in Civil Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Srinagar in 2018. After that, I proceeded to do my MTech in the Environmental and Water Resources branch of Civil Engineering at IIT Hyderabad. Along with my coursework in the first year, I worked on various mini projects and got acquainted with multiple modelling software used in hydrology. I developed a keen interest in incorporating techniques from other engineering fields for the advancement of hydrological modelling.
Thus, as part of my Master’s thesis, a multi-spatial hybrid type of rainfall-runoff model with a conceptual (SAC-SMA) and a data-driven model (ANN) was developed and applied over the Godavari river basin. I am currently enrolled in the IITB-Monash joint PhD programme and working on the topic of “Effect of global warming on precipitation extremes in India” under the supervision of Prof. Basudev Biswal (IITB) and Prof. Marc Parlange (Monash). My hobbies are playing cricket, travelling and watching movies.
