Brief Profile :
I am currently working at ATREE under a project Ph.D. position. I am interested in trying to provide perspectives on the existing water conflict in the Cauvery basin from a socio-hydrology lens.
Before joining ATREE, I have six years of research experience in water resources management, specifically around water conflicts pertaining to hydropower projects in northern Indian river basins. I hold a Masters in water management from TERI University, New Delhi and after masters have taken up research assignments at sub-national, national and South-Asian level with organisations like People’s Science Institute, Uttarakhand, Northern Himalayas; International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), Nepal, GB Pant Institute of Himalayan Environment and Development, Uttarakhand, Northern Himalayas, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), New Delhi and Indian Himalayan Region. For my research, I have traveled widely across varied mountain and plains socio-ecological systems within the catchments in the Northern Indian Himalayan region. I have travelled from source to confluence along Upper Ganga, Ramganga, Bhilangana, Dharam Ganga, Bal Ganga, Sarj/yu rivers and learned to apply my research and training to address the issues at the grassroots.
