Angshuman M. Saharia

Hydroinformatics Scientist

Angshuman Saharia is a hydroinformatics scientist at The Water Institute of the Gulf's Coastal and Deltaic Systems Modeling group. His expertise has been in the modeling of compound flooding, hydrodynamic modeling, hydrology, water quality modeling, and environmental fluid mechanic. Dr. Saharia received his undergraduate with a Bachelor of Technology in Civil Engineering from Tezpur Central University, graduated with a Master of Technology in Water Resources Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati, master's degree project at RWTH Aachen University, Germany(DAAD scholar), and Ph.D. in hydrology and water resources engineering from the University at Buffalo, New York. Dr. Saharia has contributed to the development of compound flood model, sediment model, and water quality models framework during his Ph.D. He has also coupled sewage model with river hydrodynamic model to demonstrate nanomaterial transport, and E. coli transport in urban coastal river. Dr. Saharia is currently working on the projects such as Louisiana Watershed Initiative and Texas General Land Office (GLO) Combined River Basin Flood Studies in the Deltaic Systems Modeling group.
