He drew on his remarkable skills as a scientist, communicator and manager to give this new organization a positive start. Ouranos’ research into climatology and its impacts has already helped the organization make its mark nationally and internationally.
Mr. Décoste graduated from the l’Université du Québec à Montréal, earned a Doctorate in physics from the University of Maryland, and served as a researcher at the Naval Research Laboratory and at Hydro-Québec. He has authored and co-authored more than 80 articles in scientific journals, mainly on the topic of energy.
