Prior to pursuing the D.Env. degree at UCLA, Krishna was a climate risk and food security analyst at the United Nations World Food Programme – the largest humanitarian organization focusing on food assistance, where he worked in over fifteen countries in Asia and Africa. He received his Bachelors degree in Environmental Policy from the London School of Economics and his Masters in Environmental Change and Management from the University of Oxford.

Krishna’s research interests are on extreme weather events such as droughts and storms, and how those affect the most vulnerable communities in the world. In his free time, Krishna enjoys playing the classical guitar (and more recently also the flamenco guitar) and exploring remote parts of the world.
