Dr Anwar Ali Khan

Fellowship focus: Addressing the acute air quality problem in Indian megacities such as Delhi by identifying modelling tools which understand ‘air shed’ from outside city boundaries. 


In Delhi – the most polluted city in the world – there is an urgent need to address the acute air quality problem with an ‘air shed’ approach which takes into account air pollutants from outside the city boundaries. Dr Khan, a Senior Environmental Engineer within Delhi’s government, will collaborate with Professor Kumar to identify the best modelling tools to help understand atmospheric transport of pollution and its dispersion, and to develop air shed delineation protocols, creating a model for other Indian megacities.
