En résumé

À mon arrivée France en 2014, j'ai pris l'opportunité d'étudier le français et de suivre un programme d'études supérieures dans ma spécialité, l'hydrogéologie et sols.

Mon stage à IRSTEA (Février - Aout 2016) me permet d'élargir mon expérience en gestion de données avec R et Python et de me perfectionner dans le domaine de la modélisation pluie-débit. Le titre de ma mémoire était : "Développement d’un tableau de bord pour l’évaluation de prévisions hydrologiques", et j'ai crée un site web interactif (avec un base de données) pour comparer les performances des modèles de prévision hydrologique dans leurs conditions d'utilisation.

Enfin à la fin de l'année 2017, j'ai échangé mon visa de visiteur pour un visa de travail et suis motivé pour relancer ma carrière.

____________________________
On arrival in France in 2014 I found an opportunity to both learn a little French and enroll in a graduate program in hydrogeology, hydrology and soils. The "University of Paris South" (l'Université Paris-Sud) offer an excellent French-for-foreigners program and a highly-regarded hydrogeology program.

Halfway through my second year in the program I interned at IRSTEA, a national research institute for water resources and agriculture technology.

My thesis project (titled "Development of a Verification Scoreboardfor Hydrological Forecasts") targeted the current state of model verification tools, including rainfall-runoff models, and allowed me to connect my interests in data management using R and other open-source tools with modeling, model verification and statistical validation.

The project deliverable was a verification scoreboard website and database, where users explore the relationships between model type, skill score, bias, and more.

I successfully defended my thesis on 20 September, 2016, and will receive my diploma later this fall. You can find my thesis (PDF) here: https://github.com/jeffnorville/2016thesis
