Samah Larabi is a post-doctoral scientist in hydrology at PCIC. Her work at PCIC focus on the hydrodynamic modelling of reservoirs and investigation of the potential impact of climate change on the management of water release and fish habitat. Samah earned her Phd in water sciences at INRS-ETE in Quebec and holds an engineering degree in Mathematics and Modelling from Polytech Clermont-Ferrand, Graduate School of Engineering, in France. Her doctoral research focused on the development of innovative automatic calibration methods for hydrological models.
