Additional Information

Dr. Asong is a seasoned principal hydroclimate scientist with over 15 years of academic and professional experience in meteorology, climate change, hydrology, and water resources modeling. His background experience includes the areas of hydrometeorological forecasting, hydrological and climate change modeling, and water resources management. His practice includes integrating risks of weather and hydroclimate into the location, design, construction, and operation of key cross-sectoral northern infrastructure and resource planning. He is excellent at tailoring outputs of weather forecasting systems and climate models for critical and strategic local-scale adaptation planning efforts in data-sparse cold regions. His perspective lies in the thoughtful integration of science in solving challenging climate and water resources security problems of any space and time scales. He has led a range of hydrology and water resources modelling projects, and environmental impact assessments for critical planning efforts in the infrastructure design, hydropower generation, water management, oil and gas, forestry, agriculture, and recreation sectors in Canada. He holds a Master of Science in Water Resources Engineering, department of Civil Engineering, Lund University, Sweden, and a Ph.D. in Environment and Sustainability from the University of Saskatchewan’s Global Institute for Water Security (GIWS), with specialization in hydroclimatology. He is Adjunct Professor in the GIWS, where he teaches graduate-level courses and conduct research on weather, climate change and emerging hydrological impacts across major river basins in Canada. He was appointed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) panel to serve as Expert Reviewer for Assessment Report (AR6), Working Groups I and II. Dr. Asong has the computer skills to create effective courtroom graphics, the speaking skills to testify in courtrooms, and the writing skills to create meaningful expert reports.
