Dr. Gandomè Mayeul Léger Davy Quenum

Physics, Mathematics, Hydrology, Meteorology, and Climatology

Gandomè Mayeul Léger Davy Quenum is an interdisciplinary research scientist with background skills in the field of Physics, Mathematics, Hydrology, Meteorology, and Climatology. He has expertise in Climate variability, trend and change, Global and Regional Climate Modeling, Hydrological modeling, Climate and land-use change impact on catchment hydrology, Urban rainfall and flood modeling.  He holds a Master in Hydrology and Integrated of Water Resources Management (H&IWRM) at the University of Abomey Calavi (UAC), Benin; and a Ph.D in Meteorology and Climate Science at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) in Nigeria. Gandomè Quenum worked on extreme climate events mainly flooding and droughts by applying an atmosphere-hydrology coupled modeling system. Dr. Quenum is currently an AIMS-Canada Postdoctoral Fellow in Climate Change Science at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)-Rwanda; also a Research associate and Part-Time Lecturer at National Water Institute (Institut National de l’Eau: INE) of the UAC. His work focuses on the urbanization impacts on rainfall and flooding events in the Guinea coast cities in West Africa (WA). His goal is to investigate the contribution of various urbanization types on rainfall. Subsequently, his research aims to assess rainfall and floods in future cities in WA. He will focus on analyzing the space-time rainfall variability in the urban environment using an atmosphere model and a coupled atmosphere-hydrology modeling system, and on understanding the urban climate processes that affect extreme rainfall.
