Dr. Shraddha Gupta

Guest Researcher (female)

Shraddha Gupta is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Research unit for Physical Geography and Earth System InteractionsDepartment of Geography, Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich. She is a guest researcher at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

Shraddha obtained her doctoral degree in Physics from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Humboldt University at Berlin. During her PhD, she worked as an Early-Stage Researcher at PIK as part of the “Climate Advanced Forecasting of sub-seasonal Extremes (CAFE)” project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (H2020 MSCA ITN). In this project, she studied climate variability patterns at different scales based on complex network approach. In particular, she used the approach to detect individual tropical cyclone tracks, to characterize the stages of binary cyclone interaction which leads to a complete merging event, and to study the intraseasonal and interannual variability of the Asian Summer Monsoon. She further demonstrated the potential of complex networks as a promising diagnostic tool to study forecast error properties and provide a preliminary understanding of the dominant source of error, which is crucial for improvement of forecasts. Shraddha has a Master’s degree in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras,  Chennai, India.
