Bakary Simpara, M.Sc. Candidate

I started my M.A.Sc. at Université de Moncton in 2015 after completing my undergraduate degree at the same university. I hold a postgraduate diploma in Economics and Finance.

My research will focus on Seasonal Frequency Analysis of Floods in Canada.

This research will allow us to judge the relevance of seasonal analysis in various regions of Canada and to attempt to present a unified set of methodologies for handling the problems of seasonally varied flows in an attempt to improve the accuracy of extreme flood estimates. It will also be used to broadly identify specific geographical regions of Canada for which seasonal analysis would be beneficial, as well as other regions where seasonal modeling might not be needed.
