Badarvada Yadidya, PhD

Hi! 👋🏽

I’m B. Yadidya.

I’m currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with Prof. Brian K. Arbic in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
My research focuses on leveraging high-resolution data-assimilative HYCOM simulations in conjunction with satellite altimetry, including the newly launched SWOT satellite, to map and understand the global internal wave field.

Project title: “Diagnosis and Validation of the Time and Spatial Variability of Remotely Generated Internal Waves in Global Ocean Simulations”.

I received my PhD from the Centre for Atmospheric Sciences, Indian Insitute of Technology Delhi in January 2023. I worked on the “Variability of Internal waves in the Andaman Sea” under the supervision of Prof. A. D. Rao and Prof. Vimlesh Pant. During my PhD, I’ve looked at the variability of internal waves across multiple timescales ranging from diurnal, seasonal, interannual to climate scales in one of the hotspot regions for large-amplitude internal waves - the Andaman Sea. My PhD was funded by the Department of Science and Technology, India under the INSPIRE fellowship.
