Prof. Subhasish Dey is an eminent expert in hydrodynamics and has made outstanding contributions in developing theories and solution methodologies of various problems on applied hydrodynamics, turbulence, boundary layer application, sediment transport and open channel hydraulics. He is currently Professor and Brahmaputra Chair of the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, where he teaches free surface flow, hydraulics of sediment transport and turbulent fluid flow in post-graduate level. He has offered short courses on turbulent flow, sediment transport and scour in different universities of various countries, such as the University of Hong Kong, Università di Pisa, Università della Calabria, Politecnico di Milano, University of Florence, University of Oulu and Instituto Superior Tecnico Lisbon, National Chung Hsing University Taiwan etc. He was awarded PhD in the area of scour at bridge piers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur in 1992. Presently, he is engaged in studying turbulence characteristics over sediment beds and other turbulence related problems. His general areas of research interests encompass analytical hydrodynamics, sediment transport, scour, open-channel flows, coherent motion in turbulent flow, turbulent boundary-layer and double-averaging flow characteristics over macro-rough beds. He has published 118 research papers in journals. He is Associate Editor of Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, Sedimentology, Acta Geophysica, Journal of Hydro-Environment Research, International Journal of Sediment Research and Journal of Numerical Mathematics and Stochastics. He is a Council Member of the World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research, Beijing. He is fellows of Indian Academy of Sciences and Indian National Academy of Engineering.
