I am a Scientist working at National Institute of Hydrology (A Government of India Society under Ministry of Water Resources), Roorkee - 247667 (Uttarakhand), INDIA. My research areas of interest are assessment of groundwater potential; seawater intrusion in coastal aquifers; numerical modelling of unsaturated flow, groundwater flow and contaminant transport; and management of aquifer recharge. Few of my technical papers are placed below in pdf format. Please see my bio-data for complete list of my publications. You can contact me for any further query or suggestions.
