Girish Agrawal works on the interrelated questions of law and policy as they pertain to infrastructure development in India. He is especially interested in how roadway design and urban layout influences driver behavior (and so road safety); what is the impact on natural systems because of a rapid expansion of the built environment; how do urban heat island effects work; and how to manage natural disaster and recovery. Girish holds a B. Tech. (Hons) in Civil Engineering from IIT Delhi, an MS and a PhD, both in Geotechnical Engineering, from Purdue University. He also holds a Juris Doctor from the UC Berkeley School of Law. He is thus a licensed Civil Engineer, a licensed Geotechnical Engineer, and a licensed Attorney at Law!
