Background and Research Interests

Nandita Gaur is a Post Doctoral Research Associate in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering. She received her Bachelors in Civil Engineering from Punjab Engineering College and her Ph.D. in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering from Texas A&M University. She was awarded the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship in 2013 to develop physically based scaling methodologies for remotely sensed soil moisture in heterogeneous domains.

Nandita’s specialization is in vadose zone hydrology and remote sensing . Her research interests broadly comprise of understanding the water budget partitioning in different hydrological systems across scales and its impact on the Water-Energy-Food nexus. Her research in Texas Water Observatory is focused on utilizing multi-scale hydro-geophysical data and interfacing hydrological models at different scales to understand feedbacks between small-scale management and agricultural practices and large scale hydrologic system behavior. She is also leading the sub-surface sensors’ installation and quality controlled data generation effort for the Texas Water Observatory.
