Personal profile


As a PhD research fellow, I am involved in different projects all about contaminants in dust and soil including:

-        VEGESAFE project as a community Science program: Geospatial and statistical analysis of soil samples trace elements all around Australian cities.

-        DustSafe Project: Geospatial analysis of trace elements in vacuum dust samples collected in Sydney-Australia.

-        Airborne Lead Isotopic composition investigation with International approach towards finding out legacy and contemporary sources.

-        Global Investigation of Microplastics as a contemporary contaminants and probable bearing particles in indoor air samples      

My previous experience and expertise could be summarized as follow:

Geochemical data analyst with strong background in Geographical Information System for different approaches including modelling potential exploration zones and Environmental studies.

Involved in different projects when I was employed at Geological Survey of Iran (GSI) including:

-        Geochemical spatial data Analysis of Yazd-Iran Exploration Zone

-        Integration and Modeling geospatial data of Kharturan Zone (Semnan province) for Exploration

-        Geochemical spatial data Analysis of Kashmar-Bardskan Exploration Zone

-        Geochemical spatial data Analysis of Northern Khorasan with exploration approach

-        Cartography and Marine Geochemical data analysis of Chalus-Hachiroud sheets for Environmental approaches

-        Fuzzy-AHP modelling method of geospatial data of Abrisham-Rud towards Copper exploration

-        ATLAS of Geological map, Total of airborne magnetic field, satellite photo-map and map of minerals of Iran

-        Environmental urban geochemistry of heavy metals in soils of Hamedan-IRAN

I was also satisfied with volunteer works including:

-        Translation of Geological Methods in Mineral Exploration and Mining (English to Persian)

-        Translation of Environmental and Low Temperature Geochemistry (English to Persian, under preparation)

-        Translation of the ATLAS of Iran's Geology and Mineral Distribution: With Maps on Scale 1:250.000

 -        Editorial board of Geoscience and Mining journal (GSI)
