Dr. Schardong completed his Ph.D. studies at University of Sao Paulo - USP, Sao Paulo, Brazil in the winter of 2011 where he developed multiple objective evolutionary optimization algorithms applied to complex multi-reservoirs systems. He completed his master in 2006 in Water Resources Management and the Bachelor degree in 2002 also from University of Sao Paulo. He is working as an associate researcher and decision support system developer at Laboratory for Decision Support System (LabSid/USP) since 2000. Dr. Schardong also has more than five years of experience with consulting in water resources engineering for companies and cities in Brazil.

His research expertise and interests are computational and multi-disciplinary spanning the fields of water resource manager. Some of the research topics include the development of decision support systems, single and multi-objective evolutionary optimization algorithms applied to complex multi- reservoir systems and water resource problems and hydrological models, impacts and adaptation on water availability and extreme events due to climate change and water quality issues.

Dr. Schardong is currently a Post-doctoral Fellow at FIDS working under Prof. Slobodan P. Simonovic. His research is focussed on building prectical tools to aid decision makers develop resilience and adaptation strategies for climate change.
