Research Interest:

My interests lie in water pollution and its mitigation, presently looking into sources of surface water pollution and strategies to mitigate them. I am also interested in the water quality monitoring for surface water bodies, focusing on urban water bodies such as lakes. Presently, my research involves studying the nutrient budget and developing water management criteria for urban lakes in Bengaluru.

In my free time, I like to paint and do photography.
