Personal Profile


Sthitapragya Ray

I am Sthitapragya Ray, a Research Fellow at the School of Earth, Ocean and Climate Sciences, IIT Bhubaneswar. I am currently working on air-sea interactions and physical oceanography of the North Indian Ocean. My research primarily focuses on physical oceanographic processes like coastal upwelling and convective mixing that modulate biological productivity. I am also particularly interested in oceanographic applications of scatterometer data and have experience in developing value-added products from such datasets.
