dr-fahad

CEO

Dr. Fahad Saeed is a climate scientist currently working at an international climate science and policy institute, Climate Analytics. He is also associated with King Abdul Aziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as an Adjunct Professor. He holds the Ph.D. degree in Earth Sciences from Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-Met), Hamburg, Germany with a focus on Regional Climate Modelling, mainly working on the South Asian region.
Dr. Saeed has vast experience of dedicated work on diverse issues surrounding climate change. He has numerous international publications, scientific reports and policy briefs to his credit, on the topics of climatology, Hydrology/Glaciology, climate policy and communications. In addition, Dr. Saeed occasionally writes articles and also makes media appearances to create public awareness about current issues concerning climate change and its impacts.
Dr. Saeed has previously worked with Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-Met) and Climate Service Center (GERICS) under Helmholtz-Zentrum-Geesthacht (HZG), in Hamburg, Germany. He was Climate Change Advisor and Head of Environment and Climate Change Unit at the top ranked policy think tank, Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) in Islamabad, Pakistan. During his early career at Global Change Impact Studies Center (GCISC) in Islamabad, Pakistan, he also led the research section on Water Resources.
Dr. Saeed has a background in Physics. He received his M.Phil. degree in Computational Physics and the M. Sc. in Physics, both from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan.

Director

Dr. Khan holds a Ph. D. degree in High Energy Physics from Deutsches Elektron Synchrotron (DESY) at University of Hamburg, Germany. She is founding member of the non-profit organisation for sustainable and environment friendly living, Öko-Grünes Leben e.V. in Germany and remained president of this organisation until 2019. She also served as one of the Guest Editors for Special Issue on Science-Policy Conference on Climate Change (SP3C) published in Earth System and Environment (ESEV) by Springer International Publications. Dr. Khan has also worked as Scientific Advisor/Consultant for OSF heat stress and mitigation project at Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), Islamabad, Pakistan. She taught at Quaid-i-Azam University as Assistant Professor until 2016.

Imran

Director

Imran Nadeem has worked at the Institute of Meteorology, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna from 2006 till 2018. Dr. Imran holds over ten years of extensive experience in Regional Climate Modeling and Impact Studies. He has Participated in more than 20 Austrian and EU-Funded Projects. His research interests span a number of diverse areas at the interface between regional climate modeling and hydrology. He has vast experience in detecting climate change signals and future climate change in the mountainous regions using state-of-the-art Regional Climate Models (RCMs). He research also focuses on Land-Atmosphere interactions and their role in shaping the hydro-climatology of mountainous regions.
