Research Subject and Interests

  • Hydrology
  • Climate change
  • Water resources management

My project title is “Past and future fluctuations in West African hydroclimatic variability, and their teleconnections”. Most of food production systems in the Sahel region highly rely on rainfall. Over the last decades, this region of the world has experienced important changes in hydrological regimes, resulting in droughts or floods. These extreme events often resulted in losses and therefore need to be reliably forecasted. I will investigate the past and future trends of the hydroclimatic variability over the Sahel region and their teleconnection with large climate scale. This in order to provide decision makers and water practitioners with adapted tools for better water resource management.

Supervisory Team:

Dr. Bastien Dieppois (Director of Studies)
Prof. Damian Lawler


Born in Burkina Faso, Moussa Sidibe attended the International Institute for Water and Environmental engineering (2ie), where he was trained in water and environmental sciences. In 2011, he was selected to participate in an International Master program in Water resources engineering at the University of Stuttgart (Germany). Under the supervision of Prof. Andras Bárdossy, he worked on the impacts of temporal resolutions on hydrological models (Hymod and HBV) and successfully defended his master´s thesis in 2013. From 2014 to 2015, he worked at the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land use (WASCAL, Burkina Faso) as a field engineer, mainly collecting and processing data from hydroclimatic stations.
