EGU awards honor scientists for their important contributions to the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Yoshi will receive his prize at the EGU 2018 General Assembly, which will take place in Vienna on 8–13 April.
Yoshi was selected for the award due to the pioneering nature and scope of his work.
His research focus has been on capturing the effects of the human footprint on the global hydrological cycle. This new and growing body of work within hydrology is being spearheaded by Dr Wada.
Yoshi's scientific achievements include:
Since joining IIASA Yoshi has expanded his work linking hydrological science to human dimensions including the social, economic and political. He is currently developing new robust hydrological models that can be applied under different hydrological and societal settings worldwide.
Find out more about Yoshi and his work in a recent interview.
