Dr. Agarwal is the Director of AI Research at Accrete. His past work used data-driven tools inspired by non-equilibrium Statistical Physics to analyze, model and understand Nonlinear Dynamics and Stochastic Processes. He worked on examining the dynamics and predictability of Arctic sea ice extent from satellite observations, which in turn affects the lives of all living beings through its impact on global climate. This study encompassed combining the concepts of Multifractals, Noise and Chaos to understand the variability of sea ice extent on multiple time scales. In an extension of this, he developed a stochastic model that explains the statistical structure of the very complex and non-linear behavior of Arctic sea ice velocity fields.
Dr. Agarwal received a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Yale University and a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology.
