HIGHLY ACCDLAIMED WORKS
1) Devised a methodology for estimation of “design flood hydrograph” that is specified by the Irish Govt. Office of Public Works (OPW) for use by practicing engineers for the planning and design of engineering projects all over the Republic of Ireland .
This work is credited to me as I worked as the Principal Researcher of “Hydrograph Width Analysis” Project administered by the Environmental Change Institute of the National University of Ireland Galway, IRELAND, and sponsored by OPW under the OPW’s Flood Studies Update (FSU) programme during 2006-08.
2) Developed the “Galway real-time river Flow Forecasting System” (GFFS), later renamed as the “Galway Flow Modelling and Forecasting System” (GFMFS), a versatile software package incorporating a large number of river flow modelling and forecasting models that has been extensively used in various countries worldwide by practicing engineers and researchers in the fields of water resources engineering and management, hydrological sciences, environmental and climate-change impact analyses, hydropower project planning etc.. I developed this package as a component of a research project on flood forecasting funded by the “Millennium Research Fund” of the National University of Galway, Ireland during 2000-02.
1) Worked on consultancy assignments of three hydropower projects, namely Buseruka, Waki and Nyagak III, in Uganda; and three hydropower projects, namely Lower Manang Marsyangdi, Trishuli Galchhi and Madi Siti, in Nepal; a dam safety review project (Obajana dam) in Nigeria, and a Dam Development Plan in the Nzoia River Basin in Kenya, besides working in projects located in varying physiographical settings in 13 states of India.
2) A significant part of the professional career was also spent in Ireland while undertaking higher studies at the National University of Ireland (NUI), Galway, Ireland and while employed in the NUI in Galway followed by the Fehily Timoney & Company in Dublin in Ireland.
3) Attended and presented technical papers in Conferences in the USA, Portugal, Austria, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Switzerland, and Ireland besides India.
4) During higher studies in Ireland, worked in two research-based consultancy projects at the University of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania.
