PROFILE:

 

Ph.D. in Environmental Eng. from K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.

Current Position: Assistant Professor, Civil Eng. Department, Faculty of Engineering, Urmia University, Urmia, Iran.

My Ph.D. work focused on developing a Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM) Model to enhance selection of the best (applicable) municipal solid waste management option, based on environmental, technical, economical, and social points of view. The model (a modified ANP-LCA model combined with economical analysis), uses predefined information about environmental conditions of the studied area as well as the physicochemical properties of its generated solid waste, as input data. Viewpoints of local experts about some aspects of the decision (e.g. technical and social criteria) are also included into the model, to find out the relative priorities of predefined scenarios.

 

Later, the field of interest expanded to advanced wastewater treatment (especially municipal solid waste landfill leachate) investigations, where the Response Surface Methodology (RSM) applied to conclude a quadratic regression model with adequate prediction abilities. Fenton and Fenton-like procedures were considered due to their strength in decomposing severe wastewaters like landfill leachate with COD values over than 85000 mg per liter.

 

Furthermore, I have a semi-wide range of research experience in the fields of: conceptual design of incinerator systems, providing environmental impact assessment (EIA) reports, used lubricating oil re-refining through conventional methods (acid-clay treatment), and green energy applications. Able to work on own initiative and as part of a team and can deal with administrative duties competently.
