Course lecturers

 

* Dr. Evangelia Ioannidou

 

I obtained a master’s degree from the University of Reading, UK, and worked for a few years as a severe weather forecaster in the Hellenic National Hail Suppression Program conducted by the Hellenic Agricultural Insurance Organization. Then, I obtained a PhD from the University of Reading in the field of mesoscale meteorology and held a number of research contacts in European universities in a range of topics. These include convective parametrization (University of Reading), the ocean circulation (Imperial College) and mesoscale dynamics (Université de Toulouse). After immigrating to Canada I worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, McGill University, on the subject of anticyclonic weather systems. Later I worked with Environment Canada’s Wind Energy Group on wind energy forecasting. In the course of my research contracts I taught laboratory courses and guided undergraduate projects. Since 2013 I have been teaching here in the AOS department the course of Thermodynamics and Convection.

Naturally I am interested in weather and, in view of our changing times, in extreme weather and mitigation possibilities that societies could adopt. More broadly, I am interested in the role of scientists, specifically atmospheric scientists, in a progressively more automated, media-dominated world.

* Dr. Natalie Toque

I have a doctorate in Fluid Mechanics from Sorbonne University Pierre and Marie Curie and a PhD in Physics specialised in Astrophysics from the University of Montreal and the Sorbonne University Pierre and Marie Curie. I am a scientific professional with over 25 years of comprehensive experience in the fields of Nuclear Physics, Astrophysics, Oceanography, Data Analysis and predictive models. I demonstrate technical expertise in cross-functional laboratory methodologies, data interpretation and computer competency in MS Windows and Unix OS, programming in Python, Fortran, Matlab, IDL. I also am internationally seasoned and accustomed to working extensively with diverse cultures and nationalities. Some of these key locations include Canada, France, Italy, Germany and Turkey. Throughout my career, I have contributed to groundbreaking research, strategic analyses and scientific developments across various disciplines.
