I was born in Shiraz, Iran, in 1965. I received my Ph.D. degree in Environmental Engineering from University of Trento, Trento, Italy, in February 2006.
I did my Post Doctorate Research in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DICA), University of Trento. I was involved in the Hydrologic Modeling projects and Calibration of Watershed Models, in the Laboratory of Hydrology and Hydraulic Structures, under supervision of Prof. Riccardo Rigon, who has also been my supervisor during my Ph.D. work. My dissertation was entitled, "Parameter Estimation for Hydrologic Models".
