Curriculum Vitae:

Agniv Sengupta

Agniv Sengupta is a postdoctoral scholar at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His research interests lie in climate dynamics, hydroclimate variability, prediction and predictability. His current work at JPL is focused on improving the subseasonal-to-seasonal prediction of precipitation for water management in the western U.S. Prior to joining JPL, Agniv received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science from the University of Maryland College Park. His doctoral research at Maryland was focused on sea-surface temperature based statistical forecasting of the South-Southeast Asian summer monsoon rainfall distribution.
