I am a sustainability researcher with experience in the development and application of environmentally extended input-output models, and impacts assessments, During my PhD I developed the first input-output based water-withdrawal model of India, capturing the embodied water within India's supply-chains. The model quantified blue and green water contribution to various sectors, thereby serving as a base for life cycle assessment of the flows channelizing the economic-system. The model was further explored for assessing the vulnerabilities to sectors, and to the whole economy accounting in view of growing regional water-scarcity across India. As a postdoc scholar at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, I have estimated the carbon-emission intensity of consumption of various income-categories, segregated between urban and rural dimensions for all the states of India. As a dynamic modeller, I am exploring water-nexus of agricultural systems from the perspective of resource-usage and circular economy.
Development and application of environmentally extended input-output and system dynamics models, assessment of water-nexuses, impacts (footprints) -social and human from both production and consumption perspectives. I am also interested in the use of data science methods for behavioral assessments among others.
