Prof. Amin Elshorbagy is a Professor of Hydrology and Water resources engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. He is an Associate Editor of Water Resources Research, and the Journal of Hydroinformatics. Professor Elshorbagy is dedicated to innovation, teaching, training, development, and promotion in water resources engineering: Innovation of new approaches, techniques, and tools for numerical prediction and simulation of natural and human-made water resources/hydrologic systems; teaching undergraduate and graduate students the science of hydrology and the art of modeling; training highly qualified researchers in water resources/hydrologic engineering; and development and promotion of innovative sustainability-oriented solutions to various environmental engineering problems.
If you aspire for a high level education (at M.Sc. or Ph.D. level) or training (at undergraduate summer student, full-time Research engineer, or Postdoctoral level), please contact Prof. Elshorbagy.
