Brief CV

Amulya Chevuturi is a Hydrological Data Scientist at UKCEH, Wallingford with expertise in understanding global precipitation and its variability under current and future climate, evaluating model forecast skill and uncertainty, investigating rainfall related hazards (floods and droughts). She is currently contributing to multiple projects at UKCEH, e.g., UK rainfall datasets (Hydro-JULES), blending global hydrological products (HydroSOS) and UK droughts (CANARI). She previously worked as a PDRA at NCAS, University of Reading, where she was involved in various projects with a focus on floods and drought forecasting, monsoon and its onset, tropical precipitation forecasts, spatial and temporal scales of precipitation variability, hydrological cycle and climate change. During her Ph.D., she simulated and analysed extreme precipitation events over India, including western disturbances, cloudbursts and hailstorms; events which may lead to secondary impacts like flash floods. She has 11 first-author peer-reviewed papers, 12 co-author peer-reviewed publications, 2 first-author edited book chapters and 1 co-author book publication, and has an h index of 10. She has formed strong collaborations with scientist from all over the world (e.g. ECMWF, UK, India Meteorological Department, India, Peking University, China, National Institute of Amazonian Research, Brazil). She has engaged with media to disseminate information about her research work. She has teaching experience in computing and climate sciences and has supervised Masters and Bachelors student dissertations.
