Dr. Kai Tsuruta joined the Hydrologic Impacts group at PCIC after completing his PhD in forestry from the University of British Columbia.

At PCIC he is engaged in the development and application of fully-coupled landcover-hydrological models to inform future water and landuse-related decision making.
