I am an architect/ urban planner with professional and research experience on urban systems and climate resilience.

I am currently a Ph.D. researcher at the Resilience Lab, 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 the case of Mumbai and Amsterdam. I am using a combination of methods including land-use models, exploratory modeling and qualitative design research towards developing this. The research is supported by the Delft Global Fellowship and the CDRI Fellowship

Prior to pursuing my doctorate, I was on the core team for developing the global Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) together with UNDRR, National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) and Government of India.  

The combination of climate resilience and urban planning was also the specialisation of my masters degree in Urbanism from TU Delft where I graduated with Honours in Infrastructure and Environmental Design. I received my Bachelor of Architecture Sir J J School of Architecture, University of Mumbai where I was the recipient of the 'Best Outgoing Student' award. Previously, as a licensed architect, I have worked on design commissions with Christopher Benninger Architects, Serie Architects and as an independent design consultant.
