Shouraseni Sen Roy
Professor for Climatology and Sustainable Development
Professor Sen Roy is a Professor at the Department of Geography and Sustainable Development at the University of Miami, USA. Her research and teaching interests center on climatology, spatial analysis, and crime patterns. Her work focuses on spatio-temporal patterns of climate processes across various regions, including the Indian subcontinent, South Africa, China, and USA, using advanced geo-statistical techniques to analyze trends in climatic variables. In addition, she has recently started working on crime patterns in south Florida. Her research projects include: Impacts of global teleconnections on the summer precipitation in India; trends in the occurrence of extreme precipitation events in India; Impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities in the Global South, particularly women and girls, low lying islands, infectious diseases, and megacities; Diurnal patterns of weather processes, air pollution, and long-term trends in extreme events; Impacts of green Revolution induced land use changes on air temperatures and precipitation in India; Spatial characteristics of Urban Heat Island (UHI) and air pollution in Delhi, Hong Kong, and Beijing and Spatio-temporal analysis of human environmental interaction in South Florida. Her research has been published in The International Journal of Climatology, Physical Geography, Monthly Weather Review, Geophysical Research Letters, Journal of Geophysical Research, Weather and Climate Extremes, Natural Hazards, British Journal of Criminology, European Journal of Criminal Policy and Research, Cities, The Professional Geographer, and Applied Geography.
