Post-doctoral reseacher in hydro-climatology

Judith obtained an engineering degree in applied mathematics and computer science from the Grenoble Institute of Technology in 2012, then a Master's degree in cartography and environmental management from the University of Nantes in 2014. She obtained a doctorate in hydro-climatology at the Institute of Hydrosciences in Montpellier in 2017. Her thesis carried out within the framework of the multi-disciplinary ANR-PREHINE project (Pressures on water resources and in the soil in the Nepalese Himalayas) concerned a characterization of hydro-climatic systems of small high mountain watersheds (Everest region), as well as their sensitivity to climate change and land use change. She then carried out 2 postdoc internships at MétéoFrance in Toulouse, then at the Institute of Fluid Mechanics in Toulouse from 2018 to 2020, working on soil moisture simulations in the context of flash floods in the Mediterranean.

Through her professional background, Judith has strong skills in hydro-climatic modeling, programming, statistics, data management, as well as in cartography and land management. She is also a mountain enthusiast.

As part of her position as first assistant at the IGD, Judith conducts research on the characterization of the drought hazard on the scale of the Vaudois Alps, as well as the specificity of mountain territories in the face of this risk.
