Lack of clean water to meet society’s needs is recognized as one of the major challenges of modern times by the National Academy of Engineering.  Dr. Chaubey’s research is focused on improving water quality and watershed management by integrating field data collection and mathematical modeling, and developing simulation models and tools that will guide policy decision makers, watershed managers, conservation specialists and farmers. Dr. Chaubey is unique in his integration of simulation modeling and innovative field research to improve our understanding of various rainfall-runoff and pollutant transport processes at field, stream reach and watershed scales.   Dr. Chaubey is leading efforts nationally and internationally in quantifying how land use changes, agricultural intensification, and urbanization will impact water availability, water quality, and ecosystem services. His research improves watershed management decisions so that resource allocations and resulting water quality improvements can be optimized. 

Dr. Chaubey has published more than 475 research articles, including 131 peer reviewed journal articles and more than 190 technical papers in various conferences, and has given 55 invited presentations at various regional, national, and international conferences. He has won numerous honors and awards including New Holland Young Researcher Award, ADS/Hancor Soil and Water Conservation Award, Purdue Agricultural Research Award, Purdue University Faculty Scholar, Seed for Success Award, and Outstanding Research Award. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers and a Fellow of Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers. He has served as the Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on 50 research projects totaling more than $40 million. He has directed the M.S./Ph.D. work of 30 graduate students at the University of Arkansas and Purdue University.

As the Associate Dean and Director of the International Programs in Agriculture at Purdue University, Dr. Chaubey leads and coordinates international activities in the College of Agriculture to implement international programs that encompass activities throughout the entire food, agriculture, and natural resources systems. He works closely with faculty, national and international agencies, and private foundations to obtain funding and to facilitate international development projects.
