Hydrologic sciences and remote Sensing (HydSens) laboratory is an academic team in the Saint Anthony Falls Laboratory (SAFL) at the University of Minnesota.


The overarching goal is to uncover physical mechanisms describing the hydrologic water cycle through modern data science and machine learning approaches and provide solutions for sustainable developments across water and food systems. 

March 2024: Divya received an Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA).

July 2023. Our proposal for producing a multi-decadal global snowfall data record using a constellation of satellites received funding from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The project is collaborative between the University of Minnesota as the lead institution and the Goddard Space Flight Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate (CNR-ISAC) in Italy, the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and NOAA. Multiple Ph.D. and Postdoc positions are available.
