University of Felix Houphouët-Boigny
N’Datchoh Evelyne Toure is a researcher at the University Felix Houphouet Boigny in Côte d’Ivoire. She completed a PhD at the Federal University of Technology in Nigeria (2015) under the West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) framework. The associated research focused on the impact of aerosols from biomass burning and dust on the West African climate using RegCM. The results showed that aerosols do not only impact rainfall distribution but also greatly influence West African monsoon features. Furthermore, she investigated the sources of uncertainties in African biomass inventories and atmospheric pollution impact on health over West Africa within the framework of the Dynamics-Aerosol-Chemistry-Cloud Interactions in West Africa (DACCIWA) project as a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratoire d’Aérologie (LA) in Toulouse, France. She has co-authored various journal articles, conference proceedings, reports and book chapters. She is currently a research fellow with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences – Next Einstein Initiative (AIMS-NEI) Fellowship Program for Women in Climate Change Science, where she is working on the assessment of the impact of climate change on extreme rainfall and temperature patterns over Cote d’Ivoire in the context of 1.5C global warming.
