Dr. Dutta has worked in the urban environmental sector in India for a number of years and he is interested in exploring India’s urbanisation and environmental challenges.

He is interested in action-oriented and evidence based research in the areas of urban governance, spatial economics, urban water systems, low-carbon city, social choice and ecology of the Indian cities by seeking to developing structured capacity building programs and local planning mechanisms. He has developed a comprehensible research significance in the interaction between environmental dynamics, groundwater systems and water services provisioning in the urban context.

Dr. Dutta also worked with the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) as a consultant during 2003 – 04 where he focused on urban water reform that provided policy support to Delhi’s water utility in strengthening tariff reform.

With the support from DST, he set up the Centre for Policy Research at Ambedkar Central University, Lucknow where he is working on a large project titled ‘Study of Policy and mechanisms that could facilitate delivery of STI outputs for social inclusion in water sector’. The Centre is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories. He has guided four doctoral candidates and more than 25 masters’ theses on different aspects of water resources management.
