Contact Dr Abdou Khouakhi
obtained a PhD in coastal hazards (coastal vulnerability) from the Faculty of Sciences Rabat, Morocco and then worked as a
Postdoctoral research scholar at the IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering, The University of Iowa, USA. There, he worked on various projects related to extremes in
weather and climate such as extreme sea level/rainfall and their
connection to climate. In 2017, Abdou joined
Loughborough University, UK as a Research Associate in an EPSRC funded
project on developing a real-time monitoring and early warning
system for urban floods, using a bespoke network of wireless water sensors
combined with machine learning.
Dr Abdou Khouakhi is a Lecturer in Remote sensing in the School of Water, Energy, and Environment, Centre for the environment, and Agricultural informatics. Abdou's research interests include extreme weather/climate, flood risk, and coastal hazards. More broadly, Abdou has a keen interest in the application of Geospatial Data Science, Earth Observation, and Machine Learning to better understand extreme weather and climate related-events and how their combination contributes to societal and environmental risk.
I welcome discussions with researchers who may wish to collaborate to develop their proposals. I also welcome enquires from prospective PhD and MSc students.
