Contact Dr Rishma Chengot
Areas of expertise
- Computing, Simulation & Modelling
- Water Science and Engineering
Water Resources Engineer specialised on hydroclimatology and water resource management. She developed her main expertise around Water resource planning and management, Hydro-climatic Extremes and its impacts , Meso-scale hydrologic modeling for management of river basins and Socio-hydrologic modeling for agricultural water management.
Now working in the Catchment Management group, contributing to development of the web tool D-Risk2: Multi-scale management of irrigation abstraction and drought risks in UK.The tool is mainly aims to support Environment Agency staff and Natural England catchment sensitive farming officers in using a catchment-based approach in dialogues regarding agricultural water needs, and for irrigated farming businesses to objectively assess their abstraction reliability due to restrictions during drought events.
