Dr. Sridevi Jade, is currently the Head and Outstanding Scientist of the CSIR Fourth Paradigm Institute, Bangalore. Dr. Jade obtained her Ph.D. and Masters in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. She joined CSIR-CBRI in 1988 and then subsequently she joined CSIR-CMMACS in 1993. For past 3 decades she has been in CSIR pursuing R&D and Management roles. She is a recipient of National Mineral/Geoscience award for her contribution in the field of disaster management. She also received Sir CV Raman young scientist award for exceptional contribution to Earth Science. Her major research area is GNSS based multidisciplinary research and has handled several multi institutional network projects & served on several National & International committees.
Dr. Sridevi Jade pioneered GPS ( Global Positioning System) based Geo-science research in India since 1994 and is an acknowledged researcher in this field. Over the years, she lead several multi-institutional hazard mitigation projects in most difficult terrains (Ladakh, Northeast, Andaman’s) spread across the country which resulted in first time precise estimates of crustal motion and strain models for Indian plate interior and boundaries thus providing recurrence rate of large earthquakes in India. She made tremendous contribution to the development of GPS geodesy in India by imparting her niche GPS expertise through several courses and workshops to the research community within India and also in the SAARC countries. She was instrumental in setting up National Network of GPS stations as a part of National GPS programme of DST and later MoES for monitoring the seismo-tectonic activity in India for earthquake hazard assessment. Her publications in high impact SCI journals speak of the quality of her research output and citations indicate the current relevance of her research in the national and international context. She also lead mega translational research project ‘Advanced Research in Engineering and Earth Sciences ‘ covering diverse scientific fields ( cyber security, earthquake hazard and climate change ) using data intensive modelling and crowd sourcing approach.
