Seifu is a senior water resources engineer with experience in hydrology, hydraulics, water-resources engineering, climate-change impact assessment, and geographic information systems (GIS). He’s addressed requirements for estimating flooding extent and timing, flood management, and assessing the effects of land use and climate change on flooding potential.
Having led several projects in Alberta, Canada related to a June 2013 flooding, Seifu has assessed mechanisms to improve flood forecasting and the response of Alberta’s drainage basin to major storms. He has demonstrated theoretical and practical skills in hydrology, hydraulics, and GIS through the creation of models, practical model application, and publications in peer-reviewed journals. His academic experience includes teaching graduate and undergraduate courses at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Manitoba.
Outside of work, Seifu is dedicated to seeing his three children reach their potential. He aspires to be a global leader in water resources and is also an avid soccer fan.
