Three PhD students of the University of Hyderabad, Feba Francis, Charan Teja Tejavath and Vikas Kumar Kushwaha, were recently acknowledged by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) for being expert reviewers for its latest reports (AR6), released in 2021-2022. The first report is on the Physical Science Basis of climate change, and the second is on Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. Feba and Vikas reviewed both reports, and Charan reviewed the second report.
All three of them worked for their PhD under the supervision of Prof. K Ashok at the Centre for Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.
