Affiliate Assistant Research Professor
A trained chemical engineer, Sarath's research interests follow from his thesis on the Impact of Asian Megacity Emissions at a local, regional and global level. After working for 5 years with the World Bank on air quality and climate change issues, he is now based in New Delhi, India as an independent researcher. His interests include air pollution modeling and integrated air quality management in developing countries. For more information on his research www.urbanemissions.info.
