I am a Ph.D. researcher at the Resilience Lab at TU Delft advised by Dr.Tina Comes and Dr. Nazli Aydin. My research focus is to develop a methodology for urban planning under climate uncertainties.

Most recently, I worked for the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) with the UN office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) and Government of India. I was the programme coordinator for major international meetings to build the agenda for CDRI, each with delegations from 25+ countries. The combination of climate risks and urban planning was also the specialisation of my masters degree in Urbanism. I use my expertise and experience in my ongoing research for resilient urban planning strategies for Amsterdam and Mumbai.

As a licensed architect, I have worked on prestigious design commissions with Christopher Benninger ArchitectsSerie Architects and as an independent design consultant. 

As part of my PhD Research, I am interviewing experts working on urban planning, infrastructure and climate risks. For recommendations and collaborations, please reach out to me. This is a brief project note.
