Shishir Basant (PhD Student, 2014- Current)
I am interested in land-atmosphere processes, especially the linkages between hydrologic cycles and vegetation change at various scales. I am currently working at A&M’ s research station at the La Copita Ranch, where I am trying to understand how shrub encroachment interacts with soil morphology and hydrology of the landscape. Other research interests include geology, soil geomorphology, biogeography.
I got my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Nagpur, India in 2009 after which I worked with coal based power plants for two years before moving into waste management. Before moving to A&M in August 2014, I was in India where I was working with organic farming and forestry programs in northern rural India. I also have a keen interest in political ecology and cultural history.
