TIGR2ESS: Transforming India's Green Revolution by Research and Empowerment for Sustainable food Supplies

A Global Challenges Research Fund project


My research focuses on understanding resource-use sustainability. 

In TIGR2ESS, I assess agricultural communities' abilities in irrigation management. These communities are located in the semi-arid regions of India. Groundwater based irrigation is crucial to building climate-resilient agriculture, but groundwater depletion is already an alarming problem. I use economic theories and statistical data as the base for analysing resource-use behaviour and work towards applying a systems approach to understand sustainability.  

I have a doctoral degree from the Centre of Development Studies, University of Cambridge and a post-graduate degree from the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay.
