Key Facts


Juraj Parajka received his MSc degree in Geography from Comenius University, Slovakia, in 1994 and his PhD degree from the University of Technology, Slovakia in 2001. From 1997 to 2002, he worked at the Slovak Academy of Sciences in the experimental hydrologic research. In 2002, he received a European Marie Currie Fellowship (5.FP) at Vienna University of Technology to focus on the spatial estimation in water resources at the regional scale. In 2007 he received a British Council RXP award for studying effects of climate change on snow hydrology in the Alps.

He has published around 80 scientific articles in the area of hydrology and water resources. 38 of these articles appeared in international peer reviewed journals listed in the ISI citation index. His publications have been cited about 600 times as per the ISI data base, and his H-index is 13.  He is Associated Editor of Water Resources Research, Journal of Hydrology and Hydromechanics and Hydrology-Open Access Journal.
