University of Waterloo
I’m a graduate student from India pursuing Master of Environmental Studies in Sustainability Management at the University of Waterloo. Under the supervision of Dr. Prateep Nayak, my research will focus on water quality analysis through a livelihood perspective. I also hold a Master of Technology in Environmental Engineering and Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering. Work experience over a year as SRF at ICAR-Indian Institute of Water management and EDF for microbiological filter development and air pollution repository establishment provided exposure to several design and analysis innovative technologies. My research interests broadly include water quality analysis, wastewater treatment, coastal fisheries, microbial fuel cell and bio-energy generation. My drive to integrate and examine the humanistic side of engineering introduced me to social-ecological systems, resilience and well-being.
