Dr. Kai Tsuruta joined PCIC as part of the Global Water Futures project after completing his PhD in forestry from the University of British Columbia. Kai's doctoral research focused on the development of a large-scale sediment transport model to study the potential impacts of a changing climate on the sediment dynamics of the Fraser River Basin in British Columbia. His work at PCIC will contribute to a multi-model hydrological study that aims to develop and adapt models to inform future water-related decision making.
