Work ExperienceFor more than three decades I have been involved with research projects at the University of Tehran in undergraduate and graduate levels related to Geomorphology, Watershed Management, and Wind/Water Erosion. I have been principal investigator of several research projects related to natural resources, conducted by the University of Tehran. I also have work experience as principal researchers with the Forest, Rangeland and Watershed Management Organization of Iran on a variety of projects dealing with natural resources management especially in arid and semi arid regions of Iran. As a representative of Asia and Iran, I am active member of the United Nations Committee on Science and technology (UNCCD) since 2002 to promote international collaboration on common challenges related to global warming, climate change, land degradation and desertification. Project Manager of the project conducted by UNDP titled" Strengthening of the post graduate programs of the Faculty of Natural Resources, Karaj" is an example of the international collaborative projects.
