I am currently
working as an Assistant Professor in Department of Civil Engineering at RNS
Institute of Technology, Bangalore, India. I obtained my Master’s degree by
course work in Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering and Bachelor’s degree
in Civil Engineering with distinction from Sri Venkateswara University,
Tirupati. My long-term goal is to pursue research career in academia and a
graduate research degree from University of
Ottawa would be a great opportunity to achieve the same. Through my course of
study and work, I attained a deep understanding of various theories in Hydraulics and Hydrology, and would like to apply them
to address different challenges.

During my
undergraduate studies, Water Resources Engineering is the branch of civil
engineering that caught my attention more than any other field of study.
Particularly I was very much keen on subjects like Fluid Mechanics and
Hydrology. This had great influence on my choice of
studies later.

With an aim of studying
my interested subjects more in detail, I did my masters in Hydraulics and Water
Resources Engineering in one of India’s top most universities, Sri Venkateswara
University. During my masters, I did courses on Advanced
Fluid Mechanics, Concrete dams and Advanced Hydrology. I particularly
enjoyed topics of hydrology and river hydraulics, which
gave me sound and broad conceptual knowledge about different phases of
hydrological cycle, and open channel hydraulics.  

I worked on groundwater
quality studies of Renigunta region, Tirupati with my instructor Dr. Aruna
Jyothy for my course project requirements. This project required
physico-chemical analysis of groundwater at different sampling stations,
calculation of water quality indices and preparation of maps showing quality of
different water parameters using ArcGIS. Give some
conclusion here like (this gave me some professional experience or motivated or
gave insight on how to work towards a project)

Apart from
education, Sri Venkateswara University offered me an opportunity to share my
knowledge with fellow students through ‘Teaching Assistantship’, which I
enjoyed immensely. I have taught experiments in fluid mechanics laboratory to
undergraduate students. (Edit resume accordingly).
I enjoyed teaching undergraduate students and it boosted my confidence in
topics of hydraulics. Also, I found it rewarding to be able to help students to
succeed in their classes. This had a great influence on
me to take up teaching profession.

In August 2016,
I started working as Assistant Professor at RNS Institute of Technology, a
well renowned college in Bangalore. I was one among 5
finalists out of 77 who were selected as “asst professors”.( check –
grammer). In the span of three terms or semesters, I taught
Hydrology, Hydraulic Structures and Fluid Mechanics to undergraduate students.

This opportunity apart from improving my teaching skills, adding more water resources
engineering background (check – sentence) as I
am performing a job which requires significant amount of preparation for the class.
Most importantly, I found fascinating the study of open channel hydraulics
where I am hoping to focus my research at University of Ottawa. This strengthened
my intuition to take up my further studies in hydraulics. I became a demander of excellence for myself, and
accepting nothing less than most thoughtful work. This served as a stepping stone for the important career decision
to pursue Ph.D. I would like to start my research career with MASc, where
I will get enough time to prepare myself with research prospects which are very
much essential for PhD studies. (check – continuity)


Having acquired a
good conceptual knowledge in Hydraulics and Hydrology, I am interested in
furthering my knowledge by working on an application which integrates my
experience in both. I found the research at the graduate programme in Water
Resources Engineering at University of Ottawa is captivating in the areas of
river hydraulics, stochastic hydrology, and climate change. As a young prospective researcher with an open mind, I am ready to
work with any idea on which employs different remote sensing techniques to
address challenging issues in earth observation. If the chance is
presented, I would take teaching assistantship, while a graduate student at
University of Ottawa. Teaching is something I personally find exciting and will
consider as a long-term career once I am done with my research studies. My
reason for joining University of Ottawa graduate program, is to become a
university professor and conduct different research
in my area of interest which includes, but not limited to river hydraulics.

I hope my
experience and skills have prepared me well to take up a research position and
achieve desired goals. Furthermore, my prior involvement in student clubs at
college level has provided me with an experience in communication and
collaborating with people at all levels and from diversified groups. My father
and my advisors have been a consistent source of inspiration towards my
ambition to become a good researcher. I learnt
to stay focused and enjoy my work in which both are very much needed to pursue
research. I tend to produce substantial work during work during my graduate
studies and I believe that the guidance and resources available at University
of Ottawa will be essential to achieve this goal.
