Dr. Frédéric K. Bonou is Researcher and Assistant Professor at the National University of Sciences, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics of Abomey (UNSTIM) in Benin. He obtained a PhD in Physical Oceanography in 2016 on the variability of CO2 parameters in the Tropical Atlantic Ocean from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Recife, Brazil (UFPE). Since 2016, he has been working in Benin on the implementation of CO2 estimation in the tropical Atlantic Ocean using multi-regression and neural network methods. He has involved in regional projects with Ghanaian researchers and Brazilians researchers on analysis of shorelines dynamics in Benin and CO2 variability in Tropical Atlantic Ocean. He is member of Ocean Acidification – Africa group, Brazilian Ocean Acidification Groups. He is currently working with Benin DECIMALS team members using GeoMIP simulations for the analysis and understanding of the impacts of geo-engineering on the West African Monsoon. Dr Bonou is also a member of the teaching team of the Master in Physical Oceanography and Applications at the ICMPA-UNESCO Chair. He is in charge of the “Climatological Data Analysis: Statistical Tools” course in this Master and co-supervises the students’ internships. He is also Associated Researcher at the Fisheries and Oceans Research Institute of Benin (IRHOB).
