Professor and Future Fellow (ARC) in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Ashish is a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. He is an engineering hydrologist interested in problems involving  hydrological uncertainty. Much of his research has focussed on the impact of climate change and variability on hydrological practice, along with applications related to remote sensing, formulating stochastic approaches, developing hydrological models, and the two big hydrology bread-and-butter problems - design flood estimation + water resources management.

Ashish has served as the President of the International Commission of Hydrologic Sciences (IAHS) Commission on Statistical Hydrology (STAHY) since 2016.

Ashish has served on the Australian Research Council's College of Experts twice.

Assist served on the Technical Committee overseeing the development of the Australian Rainfall and Runoff Design Flood Estimation guidelines (ARR2016).


My Grants

See Australian Research Council grants at https://dataportal.arc.gov.au/NCGP/Web/Grant/Grants#/20/1/-announced/Ashish%20Sharma/ from most recent to older. Ashish is frequently awarded other (non-ARC) grants, many funded directly from Government and other agencies.
