I am a post doctoral researcher in Prof Denise Mauzerall’s group. My research is focused on understanding the drivers of air quality in India. Some of the science questions I’ve addressed through my work, so far, include -how trans boundary pollution affects local air quality along the Indo Gangetic Plains; is synoptic relation of dust emissions and monsoon independent of radiative forcing; what is the seasonal signature of chemical and optical properties  of aerosols over India ; why won’t acid rain be a problem in north Indian terrain, among others. During my research at Princeton, I will study existing policies for air quality control in different sectors and their effectiveness in alleviating air pollution in India.
