Pamela Claure is a Research Assistant at SEI Latin America. Her work focuses on the development of modelling systems and decision support tools as part of participatory modelling processes to improve water management.
Pamela has two masters degrees in sciences. The first one is in International Land and Water Management from Wageningen University and the second one in Water Science and Engineering with a specialization in Hydroinformatics from UNESCO-IHE. Her educational background and her eight years of work experience have allowed her to have a deep comprehension of both social and technical aspects of water management, letting her formulate comprehensive solutions to complex problems through extensive analysis and accurate assessment of relevant data. Hydraulic/hydrological modelling, water allocation modelling, system analysis, optimization, water management, infrastructure design, data analysis, stakeholder analysis and river basin planning have been key aspects of her education and work.
Based on her work experience she identified that it is essential to work in the interface between physical and social sciences, therefore, she is very interested in further working within this interface as she considers this interlinkage a key aspect which potential and impact in the outcomes of modelling systems has not been fully exploited and wishes to contribute to its development.
