Amor Ines is an agro-hydrologist working on integrations of advanced modeling techniques, remote sensing (RS) and seasonal climate forecasts for decision support in agriculture and water management. He holds a BS in agricultural engineering, magna cum laude, and an MS and PhD in water engineering and management with a focus on irrigation engineering and management, and integrated water resources management. His research interests include: linking climate information in agriculture and water management; remote sensing in agriculture and water management; climate-based crop forecasting methods; statistical downscaling of climate (seasonal; climate change time scale); data assimilation applied to soil-water-atmosphere-plant models from field to regional scale; development and applications of evolutionary-biological algorithms (genetic algorithms, etc.) to agriculture and water management; agro-hydrological modeling/vadose zone hydrology (variably saturated flows); high-performance computing for RS-agro-hydrological modeling; stochastic/deterministic water resources systems analyses (optimization and operational management).
