Dr. Amin Elshorbagy
Dr. Amin Elshorbagy, a professor of hydrology and water resources engineering at the University of Saskatchewan, is a licensed professional engineer with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists (APEGS) of Saskatchewan. The research and expertise of Dr. Elshorbagy are focused on, and link, the areas of hydrologic and water resources systems modeling and decision analysis through synthesizing the results of various modeling tools and techniques to support the decision making process. Dr. Elshorbagy also works extensively on integrated water resources management of trans-boundary rivers, attempting to address the challenges of sustainable utilization of water resources in light of the past hydroclimatic conditions as well as possible future changes. Water-energy-food nexus is an emerging, central theme of Elshorbagy’s current research as the second-generation approach of managing integrated resources, including water. The areas of expertise and interests of Dr. Elshorbagy include system dynamics and emulation of complex models, stochastic hydrology, data driven hydrology, watershed modeling, flood modeling in the Canadian prairies, uncertainty analysis, multicriterion decision and risk analysis, impact of climate change on water resources and urban systems, and use of proxy records (tree rings) for extending hydrological records. Amin’s expertise led him to deliver invited talks in several places in Canada, Europe, and Australia. Professor Elshorbagy is currently an Associate Editor of the Journal of Water Resources Research and served as Editor of the Journal of Hydroinformatics. He has been serving on technical and scientific committees of several international conferences in water and geosciences. Dr. Elshorbagy was invited to deliver talks at the University of New South Wales, Australia, University of Bristol, UK, University of Bologna, Turin Polytechnic, and the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy, and various Chinese universities. He also delivered invited talks in International conferences, workshops, and to oil sands industry and consortia. Dr. Elshorbagy convened several sessions in international conferences in hydrology and geosciences, and served in the scientific and the steering committees of several International Conferences, including Hydroinformatics, World Water Congress, and International Committee on Irrigation and Drainage. He served as a referee for scientific grants submitted to NOAA, NSERC, MITACS, and Chile Research Fund, and for several tenure and promotion cases of professors at Canadian, American, and Middle Eastern Universities. He examined Ph.D. theses in Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America. Dr. Elshorbagy is well cited scholar and published over 150 publications in international journals and conferences and supervised over 30 Masters, Doctoral, and Postdoctoral fellows. He worked with municipal and provincial governments, and secured funding from all levels of government in Canada, including NSERC, and industry. Professionally, Dr. Elshorbagy progressed and advanced in academia by rising through the ranks and being promoted to Full Professor in 2009, only seven years after he started his faculty career as a new Assistant Professor in 2002 at the University of Saskatchewan.
