Jean Bergeron, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral researcher

Research interest and expertise

Hydrologic modelling, snow, data assimilation, remote sensing applied to water resources (snow, precipitation, water elevation), hydrodynamic modelling.
For the research chair, I will focus on the dynamic calibration of hydrologic models using various data assimilation approaches.
