Auroop Ganguly, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, examines the role our planet’s changing climate plays in weather events like Hurricane Sandy.
The western and southern United States is currently experiencing the worst drought since 1988. We asked Auroop Ganguly, a professor of civil and environmental engineering, to explain the effects of climate change on drought and its impact on the environment.
Auroop Ganguly, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, analyzed the relationship between global warming and last week’s heat wave.
Auroop Ganguly — an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering who heads Northeastern’s Sustainability and Data Sciences Lab — explains how global climate change and extreme weather, such as hurricanes and heat waves, could affect water sustainability, critical infrastructures and human health.
Civil and environmental engineering associate professor Auroop Ganguly developed a computational model to predict future water availability based on both climate — and global population change.
Auroop Ganguly, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering, takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying climate change and severe weather conditions.
