Keynote Speaker II


Prof. Vladan Babovic
National University of Singapore

Vladan Babovic is a leading scientist in the field of hydroinformatics where he has been spearheading research in data-driven research and computer modeling of hydraulics and hydrological phenomena from early 1990s. In more recent years, his work on flexibility and real options pertaining to decision-making under deep uncertainties in water- and climate-related domains gaining wider recognition. In addition to being a leading researcher and educator, Vladan is a scientist entrepreneur who was instrumental in securing funding and subsequently lead establishment and managed growth of research institutes, 65 million Singapore Delft Water Alliance (SDWA) and NUSDeltares, for both of which he served as a founding Director. Under his leadership SDWA and NUSDeltares were recognized in March 2014 by prestigious Winsemius Awards. Vladan obtained double Ph.D. degrees from UNESCO-IHE and Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands in 1995. In 2001 he obtained a business degree at IMD Lausanne (Switzerland).
