Frezer Seid Awol, Ph.D. Candidate

Research Topic: Verification and evaluation of ensemble flood forecasting from single and multiple models

Frezer is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Civil Engineering department at McMaster University. He holds M.Sc. degree in Water Resources Engineering and Management from Stuttgart University, Germany. He is currently involved in Canadian Adaptive Flood Forecasting and Early Warning System (CAFFEWS), theme 3 of FloodNet project. His research focuses on ensemble verification of forecast variables derived from ensemble prediction system (EPS), multiple parameter sets and multi-models (hydrological and hydraulic models) paving the way for ensemble post processing (EPP) and deterministic and probabilistic flood forecasts.
