Previous positions

University of Tehran, Iran.


Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Environmental Science at the University of Western Australia (UWA).

My research is focused on river water quality impacted by anthropogenic activities (land-use and climate changes) in Western Australia. My research interest lies on development and application of Machine Learning methods, Rainfal-Runoff Modelling, Surface Water Hydrology, and Remote Sensing at different scales varying from a small catchment to a large basin.
