Wide Interest Seminar – Valentjin Pauwels, Professor at University of Monash, Melbourne

Australia is the driest of all inhabited continents, with droughts occurring sequentially with a period of roughly ten years. Simultaneously, the continent is prone to devastating floods, leading to hundreds of billions of damages each year.  This presentation presents an overview of a number of modelling projects, with as overall objective the development of enhanced tools to improve the prediction and management of both floods and droughts.

Valentijn Pauwels received his MSc. in Agricultural Engineering from Ghent University, Belgium, in 1994.  He then obtained his PhD. in Civil Engineering and Operations Research from Princeton University, USA, in 1999.  He was then awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the Foundation for Scientific Research from the Flemish Community, which he undertook at Ghent University, where he became a Lecturer in 2005 and a Senior Lecturer in 2010.  In September 2012 he moved to Monash University, where he is currently an Associate Professor.  His research interest is water management, with a focus on floods.

The European Commission, via a EuroHPC call for projects, has asked each of the member states to create a National HPC Competence Centre, which will be its sole interlocutor, both to express the needs of users with regard to these new technologies and to accompany them in their implementation. Teratec, Cerfacs and Genci presented their candidature as French HPC Competence Centre which was accepted by the commission. The starting date of the Competence Centre is set for 1 September 2020.Read more
