“Exploring climate science for societal betterment”…

As a Climate-Geographer, I explore ways to understand the context specific climate risks and ways to manage the climate risks with the help of climate forecast information at various time scales.  My past academic and professional experience in South and South East Asia are focused on Early Warning System, Natural disaster management, Climate dynamics, Climate risk assessment and Climate change adaptation. My interests on geospatial and statistical tools helped me to acquire skills sets for more than a decade to explore scientific questions and research needs arise during my work environment. The traditional knowledge followed/practiced to manage the climate risks in many parts of the world brought lot of insight for me and hence I strongly believe that the “past can give better ideas/clues to tackle the problem in the future”.
