Biography: 
I am an Assistant Professor in the Water Resources group of the Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Ropar since Nov 2018. I completed my PhD in Water Resources from Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Science Bangalore in 2014. I worked as a Postdoctoral research associate in the Divecha Center for Climate Change, IISc Bangalore during 2015-2016. I carried out my post doctoral study under the Endeavour Research Fellowship programme in the Department of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering, RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia during Apr-Sep 2016. Later in 2016 I joined the Earth Sciences Department, Utrecht University, the Netherlands as a Postdoctoral fellow and worked till Oct 2018. My research interests include hydrogeology, flow and transport in porous media and stretches to its application in renewable energy and energy conservation.
