Nagireddy Nageswara Reddy

Hello, my name is Nagireddy Nageswara Reddy and I'm pursuing a PhD from National Institute of Technology, Warangal (NITW), India. I'm a part of an on-going SPARC project titled "Real-Time Forecasting of Floods using SWAT Models" in collaboration with Virginia Tech and Texas A&M. For this project, I am working on simulation of streamflow, sediments and nitrates and developing Best Management Practices using the SWAT model over Nagavali and Vamsadhara River Basins. The project was funded by Government of India under the Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research and Research Collaboration. My research interests are in watershed modeling and climate change analysis using geospatial technologies.

I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Anantapur, India and received a master’s degree in Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems from NIT Warangal, India. My hobbies include listening music, playing cricket and spending time with my kids.

Gundapuneni Venkata Rao 

Hello, my name is Gundapuneni Venkata Rao and I'm pursuing doctoral degree from National Institute of Technology, Warangal (NITW), India. Currently, I am working on real-time forecasting of floods using SWAT model in collaboration with Virginia Tech and Texas A&M. The project was funded by Government of India under the Scheme for Promotion of Academic and Research and Research Collaboration. I am particularly interested in using Remote Sensing and GIS to assess the impact of climate change.

I've received a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University Anantapur, India and master’s degree in Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems from NITW. My hobbies include listening music, watching movies and playing badminton.
