Dr. J. V. Tyagi is currently the Director, National Institute of Hydrology (NIH), Roorkee, India. Prior to joining NIH in 1992, he worked with Agricultural Finance Corporation since 1985. He has over 35 years of experience of working in field as well as in R&D in the area of hydrology and water resources sector. As a researcher, he has carried out a number of basic and applied research studies, sponsored and consultancy projects and field based studies with a focus on hydrological modelling, water budgeting, forest hydrology, impact assessment of land use changes on catchment hydrology, soil erosion and sediment transport, etc. He has more than 150 publications to his credit in the form of technical reports and research papers in national and international journals and conferences.
