Javed is a Water Resources Engineer and Climate & Weather Extremes Researcher. He is currently pursuing a PhD degree in Civil Engineering (Major: Water Resources Engineering) in the Coastal Risks and Engineering Lab at University of Central Florida (UCF). He’s affiliated with the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Construction Engineering and the National Center for Integrated Coastal Research (UCF Coastal). His current research focuses on multi-hazards risk assessment and analyzing compound climate/weather extreme events and their spatio-temporal relationships and socio-economic impacts using machine learning and statistical methods.

He has a Bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Engineering, with emphasis on Water Resources Engineering, from G.B. Pant University of Agriculture and Technology (India). He received the Erasmus Mundus Fellowship from European Commission for pursuing an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree Program in Water Science and Engineering with specialization in Flood Risk Management at four different European universities, Technische Universität Dresden — TU Dresden (Germany), UNESCO-IHE (the Netherlands), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain) and University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). Before joining the UCF, he was working at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in France as a MOPGA Researcher. His work at CNRS focused on coupled modelling of flash floods and population exposure and vulnerability dynamics for forecasting the potential socio-economic impacts of flash floods in South France.
