Debjani Deb

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), working at NASA’s Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). I lead ORNL DAAC’s ingest team which is responsible for curation, documentation and publication of research data from NASA’s Earth Science Missions. 

My primary research interest is to understand interactions between water-energy-climate at diverse spatial and temporal scales. I use data science to address challenging water resources management problems, and analyze complex environmental data for better environmental management and policy decisions.

Prior to joining ORNL, I worked as a Data Scientist in the Industry and as Research Scientist at Texas A&M University, I have a PhD in Earth Sciences from Purdue University.
