My Research Journey

About Me

I am a Research Scholar at Department of Industrial and Management Engineering, IIT Kanpur.

I joind the PhD in August 2020 and have been awarded Prime Minister Research Fellowship (PMRF) under December 2020 cycle via lateral entry.

I am currently working on decarbonisation and net-zero transition pathways for India. I am exploring energy-environment-economic modelling tools and simultaneously working on the data collection and model building using IIASA's MESSAGEix. I would like to learn more about integrated assessment modelling platforms for energy and climate modelling.
