Research Fellow in Hydrogeology
College of Science and Engineering
Amir is a multidisciplinary researcher with demonstrated achievements in the fields of coastal science and hydrogeology. His expertise has been acquired through an MSc degree in coastal science (top 10% of students) and a PhD in coastal hydrogeology, which in combination provide him with a unique set of skills for tackling multidisciplinary research questions in ocean-groundwater interactions. Amir's PhD involved the application of multiple techniques, including field and laboratory experiments and computer modelling, in creating new scientific knowledge of the groundwater dynamics of coastal unconfined aquifers. In addition to his achievements in academic research, Amir has delivered on several important industry-based research projects such as integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) to solve practical, real-world problems in coastal hydrology and hydrogeology. His research interests lie in variably saturated, variable-density groundwater flow and solute transport, and groundwater-surface water interaction, which he has studied using numerical models, and laboratory and field experiments.
