Dr. Simonovic has over twenty-five years of research, teaching and consulting experience in water resources engineering. He teaches courses in civil engineering and water resources systems and actively works for national and international professional organizations such as the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, the International Association of Hydrological Sciences and the International Hydrologic Program of UNESCO. He has received a number of awards for excellence in teaching, research and outreach. Dr. Simonovic has been invited to present special courses for practicing water resources engineers in many countries. He is serving as the associate editor of two water resources journals, and participates actively in the organization of national and international meetings. He has over 250 professional publications.
Dr. Simonovic's primary research interest focuses on the application of systems approach to, and development of the decision support tools of, the management of complex water and environmental systems. Most of his work is related to the integration of risk, reliability, uncertainty, simulation and optimization in hydrology and water resources management. Dr. Simonovicís second research area is water resources decision support. He has undertaken applied research projects that integrate mathematical modeling, data-base management, geographic information systems and intelligent interface development into decision support tools for water resources decision makers. The main focus of his current research is related to flood prevention and management. Most of his research is being conducted through the Facility for Intelligent Decision Support (FIDS) at the University of Western Ontario.
