From the 1950s until today, multiple environmental and social disasters have been caused by large-scale water management infrastructures, such as dams and barrages, in Central and South Asia. In my research, I would like to investigate whether flawed or incomplete economic analysis during the planning stages of infrastructure can be linked to the environmental and social outcomes. As part of my research, I plan to unpick how governments take decisions that impact on the environment, and how research can be used to avoid future disasters.

I am supervised by Professor Bhaskar Vira, and co-supervised by Dr Shaun Larcom. I am a member of the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute.
