I joined the University of Leeds in July 2023 as a Research Fellow in Climate Finance Analytics. As part of the UK Centre for Greening Finance & Investment, my research involves adapting climate data for financial analytics, with a particular focus on pensions and asset management. This also involves engaging with financial institutions to integrate climate considerations into their strategies.

Before joining Leeds, I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany (2018- 2022). During that period, my research centered around studying model dependencies in simulations of warm conveyor belt associated with extra-tropical cyclones, using numerical weather hindcasts.

I obtained my PhD from Jawaharlal Nehru University in India, where my research dealt with a process-based comprehensive evaluation of Indian monsoon simulations within a multi-model regional climate downscaling framework. As part of my doctoral studies, I was a visiting researcher at the University of Wuerzburg in Germany, supported by DAAD fellowship. Additionally, I have a keen interest in the complexities of Himalayan climate warming and cloud-radiative interactions.

My dedication lies in contributing to the field of climate science and fostering a deeper understanding of climate-related issues.

Research interests

My research is focused on assessing the physical climatic risks to pension funds utilizing climate and data analytics. This project is an integral part of the UK Centre for Greening Finance and Investment. In this role, I am responsible for evaluating climate data and effectively adapting it for financial analytics, with a specific emphasis on CGFI's initiatives concerning pensions and asset management. My work also involves active engagement with various stakeholders, particularly financial institutions.
Additionally, I have interest in understanding Indian monsoon and Himalayan climate intricacies in the context of warming climate.
