Ashish Sharma

Ashish Sharma is a post doctoral researcher working on the climate modeling for the Climate Change Adaptation program. He received his Ph.D in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering from Arizona State University with a focus on studying rainfall in semi-arid regions using Weather Research & Forecasting (WRF) tool.

He has experience studying the effects of changing land surface types due to anthropogenic and natural causes on the local climate and its interactions with regional climate. Sharma has research interests in the area of utilizing WRF for climate downscaling for urban and arid regions, examining effect of wind turbines for wind energy research and simulating engineering flows using CFD tools.
