Areas of expertise

  • Water Science and Engineering


Basant Yadav completed a two year Master degree at the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in Hydrology. The Master's Dissertation was done at the Technical University Stuttgart, Germany. This was followed by a PhD at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi studying water quantity and quality modeling. Basant was awarded a prestigious National Postdoctoral Fellowship (NPDF) by the Department of Science and Technology (India) in 2017. Basant started as a Research Fellow at Cranfield University in July 2018.

Research opportunity

Keen to work with people on emerging contaminates, geogenic contaminants and groundwater modelling/management.

Current activities

Basant's research emphasizes the integration of experimental, numerical and data-based modeling approaches for the better and efficient management of the groundwater quantity and quality. His work uses a range of numerical, statistical, and stochastic modeling approaches and experimental work to analyze the fate and transport of contaminant in saturated and unsaturated zones.

Basant yadav currently working on a project titled "Impact of rainwater harvesting in India on groundwater quality with specific reference to fluoride and micropollutants".
