Auroop Ganguly is a civil and environmental engineer who works at the intersection of three broad areas: (1) Climate Extremes and Water Sustainability, (2) Infrastructural Resilience and Homeland Security, and (3) Applied Data and Computational Sciences. Prior to his current position as a faculty at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, he was at the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory for seven years, at Oracle Corporation for five years, and at a startup subsequently acquired by Oracle for a year. In addition, he has a dual interest in ancient history and science fiction, i.e., the forgotten past and the unknown future. While he has nothing particularly against the here and now, he rarely gets any time to spend there and then. Once upon a time he obtained a PhD from MIT, and currently, other than his day job as the Principal Investigator of the SDS Lab at Northeastern, he takes a bunch of undergraduate kids across India to study climate change, and happens to be the Chief Scientific Adviser for a startup co-founded with one of his former PhD students.
