Academic Background

ü Postdoctoral:

Catalan Institute of Climate Sciences (IC 3 ), Spain in 2011.

The use of hydrological models to determine the effects of climate changes on the variation in viral flux, and therefore in risk associated with viral disease comprises a novel approach to the management of water-related disease. Tools developed in previous EU Projects will be used to conduct case studies on five selected sites (in Sweden, Spain, Hungary, Greece and Brazil) vulnerable to climate change (principally rainfall events), and the empirical baseline data accrued will be used in mathematical models constructed to estimate changes in exposure under defined conditions.

ü Doctor of Philosophy (Ph D):

Department of Civil Engineering, Eastern Mediterranean University,Cyprus in 2010 (CGPA 4 out of 4).

“Prediction and Modeling of Sediment Transport equations in Alluvial Rivers and Coastal Zone”

ü Master of Engineering (M E):

In ‘Water Resources Engineering’ from Department of Civil Engineering, Kerman University, Kerman, Iran, in 2003, Topper in Civil Engineering Department, and Gold Medalist (CGPA 3.97 out of 4).

ü Bachelor of Engineering (B E):

In ‘Civil Engineering’ from Department Civil Engineering, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran in 2001,Topper in Civil Engineering Department, Gold Medalist (CGPA 3.9 out of 4).
