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 using two case studies: Mumbai and Amsterdam. I am using a combination of methods including land-use models, exploratory modeling and qualitative design research towards developing this.
Prior to this, I worked for the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) together with 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. Previously, as a licensed architect, I have worked on design commissions with Christopher Benninger Architects, Serie Architects and as an independent design consultant.
As part of my Ph.D. research, I am interviewing experts working at the intersection of urban planning and climate resilience. For any recommendations, please reach out to me. This is a brief project note.
