PhD student

I am a visiting researcher at the University of Gottingen from June 2021. My research mainly focuses on vegetation indices and evapotranspiration using remote sensing. I am also interested in irrigation management and crop modeling. I have collaborated on several water management projects so far. My current project calculates the actual evapotranspiration and grain yield via different vegetation indices and energy balance models in the south of Iran. This project compares actual in-situ evapotranspiration with RS ones and drives a model to achieve the grain yield.
