Abdoulaye Faty is a young researcher in hydrology and ecohydrology, from the Department of Geography at the University of Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD, Dakar, Sénégal). From 2015, he is a researcher of the international research unit RESILIENCE, co-shared between IRD (France), UCAD (Sénégal), UFHB (Côte d’Ivoire), UT (Madagascar). After a PhD on the use of GIS for hydrological modelling to implement land-use management, Dr Faty is currently working on the integrated water management to perform the rainwater collection and the wastewater used to make wealth through a circular economy system in rural and urban areas. His ecohydrological method is fundamentally based on a mix between a holistic approach of the studied ecosystems and a technological approach based an ecological engineering and edge computing to promote nature-base system efficiency.
