I am an Assistant Professor at the Dept of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing of the K. N. Toosi University of Technology and an Associate Professor at the Dept. of Remote Sensing of the University of Würzburg. I am primarily a forest ecologist interested in geospatial applications. My current research interests are applied spatial analysis of forest entities (Structure, biodiversity and health indicators) by means of spaceborne and airborne remote sensing. In particular, I treasure dealing with UAV and LiDAR--based applications for forest structure analysis, as well as multitemporal and time series of optical data for monitoring vegetation health and phenology.
