Amir’s specialty is in large-scale atmospheric and oceanic teleconnection as they affect the Canadian climate.  Amir’s research investigation of the El Nino-Southern Oscillation phenomenon forms the basis of the understanding of the impact of ENSO on the Canadian climate.

 Amir’s has used his expertise in spatial statistical analysis to document the effects of ENSO on drought, large-scale forest fires and severe Ice Storm of 1998 in Canada. Amir’s collaboration with university and international scientists has produced a long list of publication in peer-reviewed journal. He was awarded the 2006 Andrew Thomson prize in applied meteorology by the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society.
