Dr. Panday joined Nichols College in the fall of 2016. He comes from Clark University where he was a Visiting Professor in the Graduate School of Geography and taught introductory courses for the Environmental and Earth Sciences Program that included Weather & Climate, Introduction to Earth System Science, and Introduction to Arctic Systems Science, and a graduate seminar course in Water, Climate and Society. Prior to that, Dr. Panday worked at the Woods Hole Research Center, an independent research institute located in Cape Cod, where he examined the impacts of deforestation on river hydrology in the Brazilian Amazon.
Assistant Professor of Environmental Science
Dr. Panday is a geographer with research and intellectual interests focused on using a systems approach to determine linkages between climate variability, anthropogenic changes, and land-water interactions. His research utilizes field-based observations, satellite remote sensing, geospatial data, and process-based modeling to understand terrestrial and hydrological processes across various spatial and temporal scales. Much of his work thus far has focused on the monitoring and modeling of various components of the hydrological cycle in some of the fastest changing regions of the world such as the Himalayas and the Amazon.
Dr. Panday loves spending time with his family, traveling, and trying new food tastes. He is also an avid follower of English football.
