Dr. Rajaram's research focuses on mathematical modeling of complex transport phenomena in earth and environmental systems. His current research covers three broad themes - (i) environmental impacts of subsurface energy exploration - including hydraulic fracturing and induced seismicity, (ii) biogeochemical response of alpine and montane regions to climate change, and (iii) glaciology, glacier hydrology and thermodynamics. His research emphasizes the development of first-principles based numerical models of coupled phenomena. His areas of expertise include - single and multi-phase flow and transport in porous media and fractured rock, reactive transport in subsurface environments, and glacier and ice sheet modeling.
