Deb received his bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering from Bangladesh Agricultural
University, Bangladesh. His master’s degree in irrigation engineering and management
is from Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand. His doctorate degree in biological
and environmental engineering is from The University of Tokyo, Japan.
Prior to joining the Tech faculty, Deb worked as a post-doctoral fellow in environmental soil physics at New Mexico State University’s Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences. He also served as an assistant researcher in the Watershed Hydrology Lab at the University of Hawaii-Manoa’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management. Deb worked as a project researcher with the Soil Physics and Soil Hydrology Lab at The University of Tokyo’s Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Earlier he served as a research associate and research engineer in the Water Engineering and Management Program of Asian Institute of Technology’s School of Civil Engineering.
Dr. Deb is interested in continuing his research efforts in soil and water resources
management in water-limited and irrigated agricultural production systems, as well
as other natural and managed ecosystems. His research interests particularly focus
on applied soil physics, soil-water-plant-atmosphere relationships, spatial and temporal
variability of soil properties, vadose zone flow and transport processes, and hydrological
modeling under different land use and management systems at multiple scales.
One of his primary goals here at Tech is to expand and diversify his interdisciplinary focus on basic and applied environmental soil physics and hydrological research and strengthen collaborative research efforts for sustainable management and conservation decisions of soil and water resources in croplands, rangelands, and other natural and managed ecosystems.
