Karishmaa Pai


Education: MSc. Environmental Monitoring, Modelling and Management (King’s College, London)


Work experience & Research: Research Assistant under TMSI-Geography for the Nee Soon project


My work with the team is divided into:

- Fieldwork collecting soil and water samples and monitoring field equipment

- Geo-chemical analysis on sediment cores (carbon, metals, particle size etc.) &

- Studying the effects of storm flow on small freshwater streams.


My MSc. Studies focused on GIS and remote sensing mapping of land-use and sea level change in the mangroves of Sunderbans (India) and zibar movement in the Ubari sand sea (Libya). I hope to combine my mapping, lab and field experience with some policy work towards conservation.



Interests: Remote sensing and mapping of coastal areas, diatoms (at some point, hopefully) and a fascination for Egypt. If I’m not working on samples in the lab or tripping into streams, you’ll find me on the tennis court.
