Ganguly receives grants from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory

CEE Professor Auroop Ganguly received two grants from the ORNL GO! Program. These funded projects are the inaugural grants for Northeastern University from this specific program and required a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Northeastern University. Ganguly is the sole Principal Investigator from Northeastern. These “Graduate Opportunities” (GO) projects will enable Ganguly’s Sustainability and Data Sciences Laboratory (SDS Lab) to  continue and sustain collaboration with leading Oak Ridge scientists Dr. Forrest Hoffman and Dr. Jitendra Kumar. Two PhD students will be funded out of these projects. The first project, titled “Advanced Remote Sensing Methods Using Machine Learning”, will fund PhD candidate Venkata Shashank Konduri, who joined Northeastern after a B. Tech. (Hons.) and an M. Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, while the second project, titled “Detection and Attribution of Carbon Cycle Extremes”, will fund PhD candidate Bharat D. Sharma, who joined Northeastern after a B. Tech. from the National Institute of Technology Hamirpur in India and an M.S from the Technical University of Munich in Germany.
