He has over four years of research experience in climate change and environmental policies of India and G20 countries. 

An environmentalist by training and passion, Tarun holds a Master’s Degree in Environment Management from Forest Research Institute, Dehradun and Post Graduate Diploma in Urban Environmental Management and Law from National Law University, New Delhi.
