Personal profile


Dr Pallavi Goswami is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Dr Ailie Gallant in the School of Earth Atmosphere and Environment at Monash University. Her current research focusses on understanding the processes leading to flash droughts, including possible links of flash droughts with bushfires and heatwaves. She is also interested in understanding future projections of flash droughts, including implications for adaptations. Her present research is part of the National Environmental Science Program (NESP) Climate Systems Hub, Project 2.8.

Dr Goswami did a joint PhD with Monash University and IIT Bombay (India). Her past research work has looked into non-stationarity in hydrological droughts for catchments in southeast Australia, including investigating the links of drought flows with large-scale climate drivers, and the changes in regimes of drought flows.
