CMES researcher Hossein Hashemi has recently been promoted to Associate Professor at the Division of Water Resources Engineering, Department of Building and Environmental Technology, Lund University. 

Hossein Hashemi received his Ph.D. in the field of Water Resources Engineering from Lund University in 2014. His Ph.D. research was focused on groundwater management, groundwater artificial recharge, and water harvesting techniques as the primary and efficient approach to increase the availability of water supply and reach sustainable water resources use in Middle Eastern countries. After his Ph.D., he served as postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Groundwater Evaluation and Management, Department of Geophysics at Stanford University, USA (2015-2017). At Stanford, he focused on the application of remote sensing data in the field of surface water and groundwater hydrology, i.e., precipitation, groundwater, and land subsidence. Upon his return to Sweden, he was employed as Associate Senior Lecturer at Water Resources Engineering, Lund University, where he was then promoted to Docent (Associate Professor) in September 2021. His research interests primarily lie in the area of remote sensing, climate change, and surface water and groundwater management in arid regions. Hossein is project leader of the new MECW project on AI and dust-storm in the Middle East.
