What the fellow says:

"The UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi fellowship has helped me to work extensively and gain an ocean of knowledge on the key priority area of 'Environment with special reference to Water Resources and Related Ecosystems'. My study on 'Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter Cycling' has given me a broader insight into understanding of the environment and management aspects of aquatic ecosystems and global environmental change."
