About Me

I was born and raised in Hyderabad India a semi-arid region with extreme water scarcity.  I was therefore interested in studying water resources.  A dug well in my house dried up when I was in my 5th grade because the neighbor installed a deeper well.  This spurred an interest in studying groundwater resources. 

 While my major research focus has been in groundwater hydrology, I have used my modeling background to work in many related disciplines.  In addition, I have a strong interest in sensors and their applications in civil engineering. 

In my spare time, I like to read non-fiction, watch legal thrillers and play with my cat – Dofy.  Dofy is old Norwegian for Lazy, but she is far from it.
