Personal profile


I joined the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) in May 2021 as a Senior Coastal Scientist.

I study the impacts of climate change on our coasts using data driven methods. I have focused on identifying teleconnections that the global atmospheric phenomena have on regional coastal processes (waves and sediment transport) with a focus on the Indian coastline. I like to study the response of local/regional coasts (processes) to future changes in wave climate under various climate scenarios (extreme events and sea level rise).  

I have some experience with wave-structure modelling investigating tsunami wave induced debris-dam formation and interaction with coastal vegetation and/or infrastructure.

My current research is focused on reducing risk related to coastal hazards, improving early warning systems, propagation models, perception and preparedness of risk with the use of state-of-the-art digital technologies in different phases of coastal management.      

If you are interested in discussing my research or collaborate for future studies, please feel free to contact me.
