Antarctic Glaciologist

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. I completed my PhD from the University of Oslo, Norway.

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.
