Subhasis Giri, Ph.D.

My research focuses on interaction of anthropogenic, hydrology, climatic systems, and ecology on both natural and managed systems. My approach is to employ both field study/monitoring as well as computer modeling to provide decision centric information to solve real world problems. I like multidisciplinary approach to address questions in the complex environment that crosses traditional academic boundaries of land and water system. My long term vision is to protect soil and water as well as other natural resources in our society based on combination of field study and computer modeling. Therefore, I want to develop decision support web-tools and smart phone applications to transfer the cutting edge technology of my research outcomes to the last mile in the society which will bridge the gap between basic research and modeling to management and application.
