Anand holds a bachelor's degree in Physics followed by a master's degree in Environmental Science and Technology from Banaras Hindu University, India. His master's thesis focuses on the rainfall rate estimation over India using Hybrid Machine Learning algorithms. Just after finishing his master’s degree, he joined a bilateral project between India and Russia at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal to investigate the impacts of climate change on the South Asia extremes, where he studied Marine heatwaves/cold spells and compound extremes. At UNSW he aims to understand the interaction and interchange between the precipitation and ocean extremes in the warming climate.
