Masoud Irannezhad received his Ph.D. Degree in Environmental Engineering (Water Resources) from the University of Oulu (Finland) in 2015. Then, Dr. Irannezhad followed a joint post-doctoral research program between Portland State University in the USA and the University of Oulu in Finland (2016-2017).  He worked as a research associate visiting scholar at the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) during March-August 2017. In August 2014, Dr. Irannezhad received the best student presentation at the Nordic Water Conference 2014, Stockholm, Sweden (August 11-13, 2014). In December 2014, he was selected as Finland’s delegate in Management Committee of TUD COST Action TU1405 (GABI), European Cooperation in Science and Technology (e-COST – part of Horizon 2020). His research interests include atmosphere-climate- and water resources interactions, cold climate hydrology, hydroclimatic extreme events, water resources scarcity and its environmental impacts. Dr. Irannezhad has: (i) published 18 peer-reviewed papers in high-ranked journals related to climatology, hydrology, and water resources; (ii) given 28 presentations (oral and poster) in international conferences; (iii) received about 120000 € competitive research, incentive, visiting, and travel grants. He is currently an active member of GABI Work Group 3 “Sustainability and Urban Planning”, American Geophysical Union (AGU), American Meteorological Society (AMS), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), European Geosciences Union (EGU), and International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS). Dr. Irannezhad is also a reviewer for more than 15 different journals including Climate Dynamics, Global and Planetary Change, International Journal of Climatology, Journal of Hydrology, Cold Regions Science and Technology, Water etc.
