My PhD was in applying Operations Research techniques to waste management. I have built four mathematical models to manage waste optimally, in terms of cost, time and resources. I am planning to convert these into workable models by converting them for software usage. This would help municipal authorities to plan their tasks of waste management and the benefits could be passed onto citizens in the form of a cleaner environment at a lesser cost.In addition, I am also planning a major research project .
