I am a post-doc researcher currently working on the dynamics driving the pace and steadiness of progression of the Indian and East Asian monsoons (in the INCOMPASS and COSMIC projects, respectively), using observational and model data. In the INCOMPASS project I’m also analysing the factors controlling the evolution of monsoon depressions. I am approaching these problems from an air-mass and process-based perspective. 

Previously, I obtained my PhD here at Reading working on the dynamics of sting jets in extratropical cyclones. 

My research interests include weather-systems dynamics, ranging from meso-scale convective features to synoptic-scale cyclones (at any latitudes!), monsoon dynamics, Lagrangian air-mass analysis and in general all the process-based studies of weather phenomena. I’m also happy to spend time in assistant teaching and supervision.
