Bhupendra is a post-doctoral researcher working with the Monash Weather and Climate (MWAC) group located in the School of Mathematical Sciences. He was recently (Oct. 2010) awarded the doctoral degree from the Department of Atmospheric and Space Sciences of the University of Pune (India). Bhupendra worked on two research projects funded by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). During these projects he developed a novel technique to extract cumuliform clouds from infrared satellite images using wavelet scale analysis. His studies on diurnal cycle of convective clouds and cloud-top heights revealed some of the important features of Indian summer monsoon clouds.

Bhupendra is involved in Project P2 (Climate Change), within the Cities as Water Supply Catchments Program.  The focus of his work is analysis of radar data and downscaling of climate model outputs to the city scale. This will provide future rainfall projections at appropriate space and time scales along with quantitative estimates of the uncertainties in such projections.
