A headshot of Alex Shiklomanov, a research assistant professor in the Earth Systems Research Center.

Dr. Shiklomanov received M.Sc. (1983) and PhD (1996) degrees from Russian Hydrometeorological State University, St. Petersburg. Since 1983 to 2000 Shiklomanov worked in the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), in Saint Petersburg as an engineer, research assistant, and research scientist. Dr. Shiklomanov joined the Water Systems Analysis Group in 1997 and currently serves as a Research Assistant Professor. The focuses of Alexander's research are on cold-region and Eurasian hydroclimatology, hydrological and water management modeling and analysis. Research interests include: hydrological monitoring systems; water balance and streamflow routing models; human activity and its influence on hydrology; climate change and hydrological systems; effect of land cover and land use change on hydrology.
Dr. Alexander Shiklomanov has more than 35 peer-reviewed publications. He is a co-developer of several regional hydrographic databases and a reviewer of multiple national and international scientific journals. Dr. Shiklomanov has been a Principal Investigator for several research projects sponsored by NASA and NSF.
