Research Fellow


I am working as a Research Fellow on EPSRC funded ReCoVER Project. I am also involved in a project in UCL (University College London) working on extreme precipitation. My last project ‘SAPRISE’ (South Asian Precipitation: A Seamless Assessment) involved several UK and Indian organisations and aimed at improving overall understanding on monsoon. My areas of research interest are solar variability, QBO (Quasi-Biannual Oscillation), ENSO (El-Niño Southern Oscillation), other major modes of­ climate variability, stratosphere-troposphere coupling, climate change, and monsoon. I am a Fellow of Royal Meteorological Society (FRMetS), Fellow of Royal Astronomical Society (FRAS) and Associate Fellow of Higher Education Academy (HEA). I am a reviewer for journals- Nature Geoscience, Nature Scientific Report, Frontiers, Tellus, Climate Dynamics, Quarterly Journal of The Royal Meteorological Society, Geophysical Research Letters (GRL), Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics, Journal of Geophysical Research (JGR)-Atmosphere, Journal of Geophysical Research-Space Physics, Atmospheric Science Letters, Atmospheric Research and Journal of Climate.
