With a background in hydraulics, hydrology and mechanics (BE degree) and hydroinformatics (MSc and PhD degrees), Dr. Maskey developed expertise in modelling water resources systems and application of models for floods, droughts and climate change impact assessment. He is currently working as an Associate Professor of Hydrology & Water Resources at IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, the Netherlands. His working experience ranges from research/research supervision and teaching (graduate/undergraduate) to modelling systems development and professional civil engineering designs. His key areas of expertise and interest are process-based distributed hydrological modeling, flood and drought forecasting, snow/glaciers modeling, uncertainty analysis and climate change impacts and adaptation at a river basin scale. He has worked with a large number of river basins, including Mekong, Yellow, Yangtze, Koshi, Bagmati, Red River and Karkheh (Asia), Aral Sea Basin (Central Asia), Loire and Vit Rivers (Europe), Limpopo, Blue Nile, Pangani and Incomati, Niger, Rufiji (Africa) and a number of small catchments in Africa, Asia and Europe.Dr. Masley is an associate editor of the Journal of Hydrology and the Journal of Flood Risk Management.
