About

Dr. Magesh is currently working as a Project Scientist 'B' at NCAOR, Goa. His work involves the environmental monitoring and assessment of potential pollutants around polar base stations of India. Previously, he worked as a UGC-DS Kothari Post Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Geology, Anna University Chennai (2015-2018). His area of interest is not limited to air, water and sediment quality and pollution source apportionment. Dr. Magesh’s research interests include the study of climate change and its impact on landuse and water resources. His research involves coupling the climate models with high-resolution field data to explore the physical, chemical, and ecological processes in complex river basin system. He worked on the Influence of landuse and climate on regional hydrology and groundwater quality in Tamiraparani basin, South India using geospatial technology and downscaled climate models- IPCC.
