Amadou Idrissa Bokoye
Amadou Idrissa Bokoye was born in Niamey (Niger) in 1965. After acquiring a Ph. D. Diploma "Geophysique, Géochimie and Géomécanique" from Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble, France) in 1996, Bokoye completed a Postdoctoral Program in Environmental Remote Sensing from Université de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, QC, Canada) during the period 1998 through 2001. He also holds an Energetic Diploma from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG) in 1992 and an M.S. degree in physics from Université de Niamey (Niger) in 1991. Since 2005, Bokoye has been with Atmospheric Sciences and Environmental Issues Division of the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) within Department of Environment of government of Canada. He is currently serving as specialist in climatology. In the last ten years, Bokoye carried out several professional mandates of R&D in environmental physics. The topics investigated include atmospheric composition in fine particle matters (aerosols) and water vapor, the characterization of Earth surfaces and the climate/climate change assessment as well as the associated impacts issues at regional scale. His research activities include both environmental observation and modeling. The International Cooperation remains also an interesting point for Bokoye. He contributed to several international environmental projects. For example, in 2009, he was the main scientific collaborator of SIFÉE (Sécrétariat International Francophone pour l’Évaluation Environnementale: http://www.sifee.org/) for the symposium "Changement Climatique et Évaluation Environnementale" held in Niamey (Niger).
