Dr. Lawal completed his PhD program in Atmospheric Science with specialization in Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), Seasonal Climate Prediction and Regional Climate Modeling at the Department of Environmental and Geographical Sciences, University of Cape Town (www.uct.ac.za). His PhD thesis uses discrepancy in a large ensemble of climate simulations as a tool to investigate variability in dominant seasonal rainfall and temperature patterns (i.e.
Soledad Collazo. she is a third-year Ph. D. student in meteorological Science at University of Buenos Aires. her doctoral thesis topic is about the seasonal forecast of extreme temperature events in Argentina northern of 40°S. her goal is to identify predictors of extreme temperature indices at seasonal scale, such as cold nights and warm days, to then apply several statistical models which will be evaluated to find those that show some ability to predict these extreme indices. she published two papers:
Career Objective: To be a competent and a motivated researcher who is aware and
responsive to the dynamic changes of the world. Paticularly, I aspire to take part in the ongoing research problems and challenges in the field of Oceanography.
Dr. Saleem Khan received his PhD in climate change sciences from the Centre for Climate Change and Adaptation Research, Anna University, Chennai. His PhD research focused on the impact of climate change–induced sea level rise on coastal ecosystems and their dependent human communities. The multidisciplinary perspective of his research laid the foundation to evolve ecosystem-based and community-centered adaptation strategies for the coasts of Tamil Nadu. Dr. Khan's research caught the attention of the U.S.
