Qiaohong Sun

Qiaohong Sun is a Post-Doctoral Scientist with PCIC. She is contributing to the Global Water Futures project and conducting research on the physical processes affecting precipitation extremes for short (sub‐daily) accumulation periods and their possible changes. Qiaohong’s research interests include the uncertainty of climate observations, the detection and attribution of hydrologic and climatic extremes, and the influences of air-sea interactions.

Whitney Huang

Whitney Huang is a statistician who has a particular interest in developing statistical methods/models for climate research. His research interests include statistics of extremes, spatio-temporal statistics, and design and analysis of computer experiments. His ultimate research goal, as a statistician, is to bridge the gap between Statistics and the Atmospheric/Oceanic Sciences.

Yanping He

Yanping He is a Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR) funded research associate working on developing statistical models that link surface maximum winds with power outage for future trend estimation in coastal BC. She gained her PhD and MS degree in the fields of climate dynamics and modeling.

Kai Tsuruta

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.

Yaheng Tan

Yaheng Tan is a PhD student at PCIC, co-supervised by Dr. Francis Zwiers and Dr. Song Yang (School of Atmospheric Sciences in Sun Yat-sen University). Her research interests are extreme temperature and precipitation. Her work at PCIC is to investigate the relationship between atmospheric rivers and extreme precipitation in the current and future climate. Before coming to PCIC, she had conducted research on warm day frequency over South China during the spring and the semiannual oscillation of sea surface temperature over the Indian Ocean and the western Pacific Ocean.

Dhouha Ouali

Dr. Dhouha Ouali is the Project and Knowledge Mobilization Manager of the Climate-Related Precipitation Extremes project, within the Global Water Futures program's (GWF), hosted at PCIC. Before taking this position, she worked as a Research Associate with the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network. Prior to arriving at PCIC, Dr. Ouali worked as a Climate Scaling Extreme Analyst at the Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis. Dr.

Mohamed Ali Ben Alaya

Mohamed Ali Ben Alaya is a post-doctoral research fellow with the Global Water Futures project working on a climate related precipitation extremes project, in which he is studying estimates of precipitation extremes to inform engineering design.
