Izidine Pinto


Izidine is a climatologist with a broad interest in regional climate responses to human activities in Africa. He focuses on climate modelling for short term weather forecasts, and climate projections. His current research involves the development of regional climate change projections through the framework of distillation, downscaling and understanding the driving dynamics. A main interest is in modelling of extreme weather events, contributing to more accurate future projections, and ultimately to improve decision making at a city level. Izidine is also the lead author of the 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Working Group 1. Originally from Mozambique, he moved to Cape Town in 2009, when he joined CSAG initially for his MSc (2011), followed by a PhD (2015) on improving the understanding of future changes in extreme weather events in Southern Africa. He enjoys photography and hiking, during non-extreme weather events.
