DR. G. A. Corzo

Dr Gerald A. Corzo has extensive experience in modelling for different problems in Integrated water resources management, his high skills in ICT technology have been used to develop different type of scientific application. As researcher and lecturer of different academic institutions have worked and coordinated academic programs. His expertise has been mainly developed around programming mathematical models and statistical models for hydroinformaticsproblems. Since the last six years he has been working on the use of global hydrological models ensemble and their uncertainty for climate change analysis. This work mainly involves heavy data loads from GCM and GHM models for several scenarios and developed statistical tools for online and parallel processing of such information. This work was presented in the WATCH-EU project report No. 43. As manager of the Hydroinformatics servers during 4 years he developed and implemented data base web systems for different projects at UNESCO-IHE, as well as maintained and managed the institutional basic support collaborative working environment (BSCW). In 2012 he won the Tison award in Hydrology from the IAHS association. Recently he supervised the research projects with ministry of Nigeria to develop a Spatial Data Infraestructure for sharing and analyzingdiferent regions in the country. Aside of this right now he is coordinating the activities of the development of data analsysis over large data set in the SystemaIntegrado de recursosHidricos from Colombia. This work and others are being develop under the framework and cooperation with the group CUAHSI and GEOSS, following all OGC standards. He has coordinated the statistics of the Climate change inventory of adaptation and mitigation actions for Latin-America, presented at the WWF in 2012. Is Civil engineer by training with a strong background on computational science and specialized in Teleinformatics. His areas of research cover innovative methods for integrating computational intelligent algorithms and hydrological conceptual models for hydrological forecasting (Flood Early Warning System models integration, Delft-FEWS). He developed scripts for areas of computational intelligence, optimization of water resources, online modeling and in fluid dynamics simulation. One of his recent projects focuses on exploring the use of mobile phone antennas in Colombia for measuring precipitation. He have participated on research projects in different countries like China with the North China University for Water Conservancy and Electric Power in China, Colombia (CINARA), Mexico (Technologico of Monterrey), England (CEH), Norway (University of Oslo) and others. The last five years he served as chair of the session on geo-statistics at the European Geoscience Union. He leaded the LatinAqua network for water research scientist in Latin-America in 2011.
