I have completed my Ph. D in Civil Engineering (with thesis on "Analytical and Experimental Investigation of Tidal Influence in Coastal Aquifers") from IIT Kharagpur. I did Bachelors (In Civil Engineering) from College of Engineering, Guindy, Anna University, Chennai and Master of Technology in Civil Engineering (with specialization in Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering) from IIT, Kharagpur. I have worked as a Research Associate at Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar after my PhD in Urban Water Management. Then I worked as an Associate Professor at MVJ College of Engineering, Bangaluru prior to joining BITS.
My area of interests are Groundwater Hydrology and Contaminant Transport with emphasize on Experimental and Gorundwater modeling by using numerical modeling techniques.
