Krishna works on urban spatial analysis research. His current focus is on developing methods for fine grained population and socio-economic mapping to understand spatial inequality in Indian cities, particularly in the context of urban water resources. In Bengaluru, he has been working on methods for mapping population at 30 m resolution, analysing inequality in access to domestic piped water supply and estimating urban groundwater budgets.
Krishna also has a design practice, which currently focuses on small scale residential projects. He tries to make these residences as energy and resource efficient as possible.
At IIHS, Krishna supports research and practice projects and is also involved in teaching for the Urban Fellows Programme and Urban Practitioners’ Programme.
