Bio: Dr. Erler is a Climate Scientist at Aquanty Inc. His main expertise lies in regional climate modeling and applications to hydrology and hydro-climatic extremes. Originally from Germany, he received the equivalent of a M.Sc. in Meteorology from the University of Mainz in 2008 and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Toronto in 2015. For his dissertation he performed high resolution climate simulations for western Canada and studied hydrological impacts of climate change in the Athabasca and Fraser river basins, as well as changes in precipitation extremes due to climate change. Andre joined Aquanty in 2016 in order to study the impact of climate change on water resources and agriculture in Canada and provide insights into climate change impacts to end-users. Andre is an early-career researcher and climate modeler; he runs regional and global climate models at the SciNet High Performance Computing facility and analyses their output. He uses Python and its scientific software stack for data handling (or “data plumbing”), analysis and visualization, and develops tools for these tasks. Andre is also interested in machine learning and the use of data science techniques in and outside of climate science, and is somewhat concerned about the state of software development in science. He cares deeply about open source software, open science, the environment and sustainable global development.
