My research interests have moved around water and rural livelihoods, water policy and governance issues, irrigation sector reform, Participatory Irrigation Management, social and environmental safeguards and hydropower development. In recent years I have been working on floods and development in the recurrent flood prone areas in the Ganga-Brahmaputra river basin. In the past I have worked on issues pertaining to hydropower development in the Himalayas, social and environmental standards and community mobilisation. 

Research areas: Irrigation, Rural Livelihoods, Hydropower, Floods and Governance, Decentralisation, Natural Resource Management
