Mahdi Akbari

I graduated M.Sc. from civil department of Sharif University of Technology in Water Resources Engineering and Management in 2016. Further, I got B.Sc. degree in civil engineering from University of Tehran in 2014. I worked in different capacity as researcher of Remote Sensing Research Center of Sharif University of Technology (RSRC) and researcher at Urmia Lake Restoration National Committee (ULRP). Now, I am PhD student of Water, Energy and Environmental Engineering Research Unit, University of Oulu, Finland and we are working on “Assimilation of Satellite-based Data and In-situ Records in IPCC Climate Change Scenarios to Simulate and Predict the Water Bodies’ Level Fluctuation”. Furthermore, I have started studying Artificial Intelligence M.Sc. Degree in the faculty of Information Technology and Electronic Engineering, University of Oulu, Finland. My goal is approaching application of machine learning in water resource management and engineering in my future career.
