Dr Pavan Harika RAAVI

Dr Pavan Harika Raavi is a member of the team working on Singapore’s Third National Climate Change Study (V3), which aims to disseminate research information on climate change projections in future climate and the associated climate extremes. She currently analyses the state-of-the-art high-resolution regional climate model simulations across Singapore and other Southeast Asian nations. Dr Pavan Harika’s earlier research work is to investigate the mechanisms underlying tropical cyclone formation, frequency changes, and intensity variations across the global ocean basins using different set of climate model simulations in the past (paleoclimate), present, and future climates.
