Vimal Mishra is an Assistant Professor at Indian Institute of Technology, Gandhinagar in Civil Engineering, and the Ministry of Earth Science's Varahamihir Research Fellow. His research focuses on understanding impacts of climate variability and climate change on various aspects (e.g. water resources, energy, infrastructure, and food security) related to humans and society. He integrates observed and remotely sensed datasets with large scale hydrologic modeling to answer important questions related to human-climate interactions.
Dr. Mishra's research is motivated by science questions such as: To what extent key components related to food and water are influenced by the variations and changes in climate?, how have extreme climatic events (droughts, floods, and heat waves) been changing under retrospective climate and how will these change under the projected climate?, how will changes in climate extremes affect energy and infrastructure demands in future?, and to what extent year-to-year variability in the Indian Monsoon affect the water storage and food production in India? To answer these research questions, he uses historical observations, climate projections from regional and global climate models, and hydrological and statistical models.
Current research focuses on three main areas:
