Education: 
Ph.D.: Geosciences, University of Massachusetts Amherst, 2010
M.S: Astronomy, University of Massachusetts Amherst, 2005
M.Sc.: Physics, University of Mumbai India, 2001
B.Sc. Physics, University of Mumbai India, 2001
Research Interests: 

The main focus of my work is producing and communicating physically consistent and spatially coherent information on climate change and associated uncertainties for impacts assessment. In particular, I am interested in developing methods to characterize and quantify uncertainties in model projections by using observations and by diagnosing model imperfections. At the NCSC, I am working on understanding observed and projected climatic changes in the northeast US relevant for hydrological and ecological impacts.
