Bio

I am a Professor in the Centre for Atmospheric Sciences at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi. I was born in Calcutta and grew up mostly in the city and its vicinity. I went to the US for graduate school but stayed on for more than 18 years working as a post-doc in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology/Princeton Environmental Institute at Princeton University, a Research Associate in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Duke University and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After that I returned home and joined the Centre in December 2013.
