Seleshi Yalew

Seleshi Yalew has a PhD in Water Resources Management (2018, Delft University of Technology (in collaboration with IHE-Delft)), with a particular focus on Africa, i.e., the Nile River Basin. He is currently a Post Doc researcher at Delft University of Technology. His research is on 'Ethically Informed Optimization of Integrated Water Resources Management'. Previously, he was a researcher at Utrecht University and Wageningen University on 'Climate Change Impact on Water-Land-Energy Nexus'. His research interests include: integrated water resources management, water-land-energy and climate nexus, ecosystem services, hydro-politics and social hydrology.
