Sana is pursuing Ph.D. from TUM, Germany. An architect by degree and a post-graduate from IIT Roorkee, she is a recipient of DAAD scholarship twice. Her interests lie in urban climatology, green infrastructure planning, climate responsive design, and accessibility planning. She currently researches on impact of vegetation on urban climate co-linking its multi-sectoral benefits specifically socio-environmental. She has been involved in architecture practice and teaching for more than three years.

Green Spaces constitute a crucial part of a strategically planned urban area. They render multifaceted services in terms of socio-cultural, ecological, environmental, economic benefits. Provisioning of greens should be such that it promotes social equity and environmental justice. One such way is adopting participatory approach in planning process....
The paper attempts to demonstrate the potential of Geographic Information System (GIS) techniques in Government of India missions namely AMRUT, SBM and HFA. Taking Dehradun as study area the study elaborates technical aspects of Government of India schemes in GIS environment illustrating how they can be adopted for analysis using secondary data set...
Landscape Architecture is a critically collaborative planning which assigns socio-cultural, environmental, economic and aesthetic value to built form and its surroundings. In an ever growing world, it is imperative to necessitate significant landscape inclusion in architectural built spaces as a key determinant of futuristic self-sustaining urbanis...
Unprecedented urbanization in India has triggered many ill effects on the built environment. Air pollution is one of the critical factors that have arisen owing to unregulated urban development. Poor air quality adversely affects health and life expectancy of citizens, natural flora-fauna and may lead to extreme climatic events such as erratic prec...
In times of climate change, it is said that the marginal population shall be the most adversely affected. This article attempts to explore the state of slums in Dehradun city and their susceptibility to climate change events, especially urban flooding. Taking the case of the state capital, we attempt to identify and demonstrate how the slum populat...
Rising deterioration in air quality is one of the major concerns in urbanizing Indian cities, be it due to vehicles, construction sites or from burning of residual crops. Whatever the reason be, the ill effects of the polluted air cannot be ignored any longer, the alarming rate of asthma related conditions in adults, especially children, are one of...
Climate change is pervasive and no more an intangible phenomenon. The repercussions have surfaced largely with increasing future risk. Man-made interventions remain essentially responsible for such disparity in natural balance. Replacement of natural green cover by the concrete jungles has pronounced the imbalance. Amidst such situations, assessing...
In the fast urbanizing globe, where concrete built-up is making a way through the green cover, it is imperative to study the impacts of urbanization and design the suitable counter measures vital for a sustainable development. Assessing the effect of vegetation and built forms on the microclimate of a place would help in gauging the ecological bene...
In the fast urbanizing globe, where concrete built-up is making a way through the green cover, it is imperative to study the impacts of such urbanization and design the suitable counter measures vital for a sustainable development. Assessing the effect of vegetation on microclimate of residential blocks would help in gauging the ecological benefits...
