Fahad supports the Science Team in the development and maintenance of a database structure for climate data, including general circulation models and gridded climate impact and socio-economic data, the coordination of climate science analyses and similar projects.
He has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles and reports on a variety of climate-related topics, such as climatology, hydrology and glaciology. In addition to this work, he has written and contributed to various articles which concentrate on creating awareness about climate change and has also made contributions to climate communications in the form of social media appearances. He has a background in Physics and has dedicated his professional career, which he started at the Global Climate Change Impact Studies Centre (GCISC) to issues surrounding climate change and its impacts.
Prior to joining Climate Analytics, Fahad worked at the Centre of Excellence Climate Change Research (CECCR) at the King Abdul Aziz University in Saudi Arabia, where he still is an Adjunct Professor. He was also Research Fellow and Head of Environment and Climate Change Unit at the Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI) in Islamabad, Pakistan, where he conducted research in climatology, hydrology and agriculture and was climate change advisor for the Pathways to Resilience in Semi-Arid Economics (PRISE) Project.
He has a background in physics and holds a Ph.D. in Earth Sciences from the Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology at the University of Hamburg.
