Aditya joined WRL as a PhD candidate in February 2021 to study “The coastal impacts of extreme storms in a warming climate.”

The objective of his research is to undertake detailed wave and coastal erosion modelling studies using high resolution simulated winds to determine the future impacts of extreme storms such as East Coast Lows (ECLs) in various climate changing scenarios. Aditya's research will aim to improve our understanding of future potential hazards in general, and more specifically along the SE Australian coast.

Previously Aditya has worked as a Project Scientist within an operational oceanographic government sector, where he was actively involved in the development of an ocean state forecast system for Indian ocean rim countries using numerical wave modelling. He has also played a key role in the development of a Small Vessel Advisory System (SVAS) that warns small boats against potential capsizing areas, regularly.
