Research and Activities

Her current research activity is focusing on regional climate using mainly regional climate models and she is interested in land-atmosphere interactions; monsoon climate; regional hydrological cycle; climate extremes; climate variability and change; flood risk estimation. She is coordinating the hydrological model research activity and development of CHyM hydrological model and in particular the coupling of the hydrological model with regional climate model (RegCM) for land-use impact studies and climate change impact on future water resources.
