Dr. Lalit Dagar is a research fellow in Weather and Climate Research at UBD | IBM Centre in Brunei. He has done Ph.D in Atmospheric chemical modelling of Ozone and Nitrogen Dioxide over Delhi from Centre for Atmospheric Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi. The broad area of his research involves using different atmospheric models for emission, meteorology and chemical transport of pollutants in atmosphere. He is also a member of H-TAP, WMO (Hemispheric Transport of Atmospheric Pollutants, World Meteorological Organisation) and Global Emission Inventory Activity, Paris. He has also worked as a consultant and Auditor for UNFCCC CDM projects and was involved in more than 15 renewable projects in India. He has in depth knowledge of the well-known atmospheric models, used in pollutant emission, weather and climate prediction studies, both from development and application point of view. At UBD|IBM Centre he has been working on the prediction of meteorological parameters using both weather and climate models for Brunei.
