NOVO AIRBASE, ANTARCTICA
Hi, I'm Vikram!
National Center for Polar & Ocean Research,
I am a glaciologist/geophysicist investigating the dynamics of the coastal Antarctica. I use tools like ice-penetrating radars & GPS to measure the current status of ice rises and ice shelves. I also use this data in conjunction with numerical models to determine the past evolution of the coastal region.
Currently, I work as Project Scientist - B at the National Center for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR; formerly National Center for Antarctic and Ocean Research) in the Polar Cryosphere group in Goa. Currently, I'm also pursuing my PhD from the University of Oslo, Norway and will be finishing soon.
I joined NCPOR in the summer of 2018, before which I spent 3+ years at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø working on my Ph.D. I grew up in New Delhi, and did my Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, Dehradun. Afterwards I did my Masters in Earth-Sciences from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, West Bengal.
