HYDERABAD: Three faculty members of the University of Hyderabad (UoH) have been nominated for the government of India’s Mega Science Programme (MSP) that intends to chart national vision in science disciplines such as nuclear science, high energy physics, astronomy and astrophysics, accelerator-based science and technology, climate research and ecology and environment till 2035.

The three faculty members — P S Roy, Karumuri Ashok and Bhawna Gomber — all associated with the School of Physics, UoH have been nominated as expert members of MSP.

In the broad area of climate research and ecology and environment, PS Roy, a former chair professor at the Centre for Ocean, Atmospheric sciences (CEOAS), School of Physics, UoH has been nominated for the working group on the domain of ecology and environment sciences. Sustainable development needs to be understood in the concept of ecology and economy for sustaining life and its environment.

Prof Karumuri Ashok of the CEOAS, School of Physics, UoH has been nominated to work both on the drafting and working group in the domain of the climate in the broad area of climate research and ecology and environment. He is well-known for his globally-relevant climate research on the tropical Indo-pacific variability and impacts – including the discovery of the ENSO Modoki, seasonal prediction, earth system modelling, and monsoon variability and change.

Bhawna Gomber, assistant professor at the Centre for Advanced Studies in Electronics Science and Technology (CASEST), School of Physics, UoH has been nominated in the field of high energy physics (WG-HEP). Gomber has been involved in the existing Mega Science Project – the Compact Muon Solenoid Experiment (CMS) at the LHC, CERN for the last 10 years.
