Shivansh Shrivastava

Shivansh is a PhD candidate at Environmental Hydrology and Water Resources Group in the department of infrastructure engineering, The University of Melbourne. His research involves elucidating the role of temperature in driving biochemical reactions (nitrogenous transformations) within hyporheic zone. Thermal regime of hyporheic zone is dynamic and can alter the reaction rates and final products of reactions affecting the river water quality in downstream areas significantly.


Shivansh completed his Bachelor’s in Civil Engineering at Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore (2013). He obtained his Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from IIT Kanpur (2015). Apart from academia, Shivansh is keenly interested in athletics
