Dr. Ulysse Pasquier is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division (CESD) of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area (EESA). His research focuses on the physical processes that drive the urban environment and hydro-climate. Climatic changes are expected to intensify hydrometeorological extremes – such as floods and droughts – and while this could severely disrupt populations, industries and critical infrastructure, the implications of these stressors for complex urban systems are yet to be fully understood. Ulysse’s research looks to contribute to these questions using integrated, high-resolution, process-based urban hydro-climate modelling. This work can not only help decision-makers better anticipate the impacts of climate change in cities, it also supports multi-scale adaptation planning.
Prior to joining the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Ulysse completed his PhD at the University of East Anglia and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in the UK. His thesis looked to model future flooding risks in a coastal region resulting from climate change and sea level rise.
