Charles Perrin


I am an agricultural and environmental engineer and researcher in hydrology. My research interests include hydrological modelling of catchments, flood and low flow forecasting, and the impacts of climate change on water resources. Since my PhD in 2000, I have been involved in the development and application of hydrological models for water management and real-time hydrological forecasting, in close collaboration with operational services in France. I am in charge of the "Hydrology of catchment areas" (HYDRO) team of the UR HYCAR since 2014. I also teach at Sorbonne University, Polytech Sorbonne, and the University of Tours.
