Parul Srivastava joined the Pollution Management Research Group of the IIASA Energy, Climate, and Environment Program as a research scholar in December 2019. She is currently associated with the Complex Urban Systems for Sustainability and Health (CUSSH) project.

Srivastava has been working on the development of gridding routines for the Greenhouse Gas Air Pollution Interaction and Synergies (GAINS) model’s sectors using spatial data along with downloading and validating observation data of monitoring stations for GAINS regions to understand the current impact of air pollution. She has also worked on the source apportionment and fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exposure impact calculations for South Asia, Vietnam, and Chile projects. She is currently working on updating and improving oil and gas infrastructure data in the GAINS model for the EUCLIMIT6 project.

She has an MSc degree in physics from Dr. R.M.L. Avadh University, India and an MTech degree in atmospheric sciences from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur, India. She obtained her PhD degree in atmospheric sciences from IIT Delhi, India, in 2017. Her doctoral research emphasized the utilization of remote sensing techniques along with ground-based data and detailed chemical data to study the characteristics and radiative properties of aerosol particles, their mixing states, and particle morphology.
