Hossein Hashemi

Senior lecturer

Hossein received his doctoral degree from the Department of Water Resources Engineering at Lund University in 2014. His Ph.D. project was part of a joint collaboration between the faculty of Engineering and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies. In his Ph.D. research, he primarily focused on the application of the numerical model in groundwater management, water harvesting techniques, and climate change impacts on surface water and groundwater resources in the Middle East.

After completing Ph.D., he was admitted as postdoctoral research fellow at the Center for Groundwater Evaluation and Management in the Geophysics Department at Stanford University (2015-2017). In the postdoctoral research, He mainly focused on remote sensing techniques in water resources, specifically, application of InSAR technique in the field of groundwater evaluation and management in the arid and semi-arid areas.

Hossein’s research interests lie in the field of:

·      Groundwater hydrology and management

·      Water harvesting systems

·      Remote sensing of precipitation and land surface deformation

·      Climate change

Hossein teaches courses in hydrology and fluid mechanics. He is also responsible for a master course entitled Environment and Sustainable Development in the Middle East.
