David Huard holds a Doctorate in water science from INRS-ETE (Institut national de la recherche scientifique—eau, terre, environnement) and conducted postdoctoral studies on modeling sea ice at McGill University. He taught at the college level and at l’Université du Québec à Montréal, and has worked as a scientific consultant to various companies, departments and agencies. At Ouranos since 2009, he produces studies of climate change issues affecting rainfall, hydrology and electricity production. Since 2013, Mr. Huard has co-coordinated the activities of the Energy program.
Jacinthe Clavet-Gaumont holds a Master’s in atmospheric sciences from Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), where she earned the Peter Zwack honourary award. At Ouranos since 2012, she focuses on impacts of, and adaptations to, climate change in the field of energy, particularly on extreme hydrological events. Ms. Clavet-Gaumont helped develop an approach to calculating probable maximum rainfall and floods (PMP, PMF) using regional climate models. Since 2013, Mrs. Clavet-Gaumont has co-coordinated the activities of the Energy program within the Vulnerabilities, Impacts and Adaptation Group.
