Biography

Shweta completed her bachelor's and master's degrees in Mechanical Engineering and joined her doctorate programme in the field of Climate studies at CCRC, UNSW in March 2019. She has four years of experience in the field of geophysical fluid dynamics. She started the research in this field as a research assistant at IIT, Kanpur, India where she worked to understand the behaviour of Internal gravity waves. She expanded her research interest in IGW while working at ENS, Lyon, France where she tried to understand how geometrical constraints serve as an important factor in determining internal wave beam directions in addition to dispersion. She has also worked as a senior research fellow at IIT, Bombay, India where she focused on understanding the combined effect of mesoscale and submesoscale processes on the mixing dynamics of Bay of Bengal by using MOM.

THESIS: Ocean heat recycling
