Currently I am working as an Associate Professor in the School of Civil Engineering at KIIT DU, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. I obtained my Bachelor degree from Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology in 2002 and completed the Master degree in Soil and Water Conservation engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in 2005. I got my PhD degree in 2010 from University of Southern Queensland, Australia and Post Doctorate from University of Nebraska, USA in 2015. Prior to my current position, I have also work experience in Indian Institute of Water Management, Bhubaneswar and University of Southern Queensland, Australia. I have all together more than 8 years of work experience in research and teaching. My research interests are water resource management, surface water hydrology and drought. I have taught various courses, Water Resource Engineering, Fluid Mechanics, Surveying, Open Channel Hydraulics and Design of Water Resources Structures . I published 10 papers in International Journals, 8 papers in international conferences and 2 book chapters. I am also member of Professional societies, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), ASABE and Indian Science Congress. Coordinator of the two training program, Rain water harvesting and ground water recharge techniques in rural areas and Application of remote sensing and GIS in water resources engineering to the State Govt. Engineers organized by School of Civil Engineering in association with KRC, KIIT DU.
