Prof. dr. ir. Remko Uijlenhoet graduated in 1990 from Wageningen University with an MSc degree in Hydrology and Water Resources. From 1997 to 1999 he was a Marie Curie Fellow at the Laboratoire d'Etude des Transferts en Hydrologie et Environnement (LTHE) in Grenoble, France. In 1999 he obtained his PhD degree from Wageningen University for a PhD thesis entitled 'Parameterization of Rainfall Microstructure for Radar Meteorology and Hydrology'. From 2000 to 2001 he was a Research Associate in the Water Resources Program at Princeton University, USA. In 2001 he received a 5-year grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) in the framework of the Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (Vernieuwingsimpuls), which has allowed him to set up a research team in Hydrometeorology, within the Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management Group at Wageningen University. In 2006 he became an Associate Professor and in 2007 he was appointed Full Professor and Chair Holder of Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management at Wageningen University. His main research topics are (1) the measurement and parameterization of the space-time variability of rainfall using ground-based remote sensing techniques and (2) the development of conceptual and physically-based models to study the hydrological impact of the space-time variability of rainfall. Remko Uijlenhoet is actively involved in preparing the Dutch ground validation effort for the planned NASA/ESA/JAXA Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission at the Cabauw Experimental Site for Atmospheric Research (CESAR). He has served as Associate Editor for Water Resources Research and currently serves as a Member of the Editorial Boards of Advances in Water Resources and Hydrology and Earth System Sciences.
