Born in Israel in 1980, Nadav Peleg received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Geology before obtaining his Ph.D. in Hydrology and Water Resources from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2014. Using statistical methods and computational modelling, he studied the climate change impact on rainstorms and hydrological regime in Israeli drainage basins. His main research interests include computational modelling, remote sensing analysis, catchment hydrology, climate change and short-term geomorphology processes.
Nadav Peleg's responsibilities include the application and integration of climate downscaling techniques and the assessment of related uncertainties in Alpine environments, in order to provide high-resolution climate scenarios for the 21st century for use in impact analysis in the water resources and hydropower sectors.
