University of Tehran (Iran)

Title: Optimizing Soil Moisture Estimation from Polarimetric SAR Imagery in Agricultural Lands

Short abstract: Using polarimetric SAR data for retrieving soil moisture is a common approach. My thesis aim is to optimize soil moisture retrieval from polsar data using soft computing methods in order to use it in a practical approach.

Title: Planning and Sustainable Energy Performance of Urban Settlements

Short abstract: My study uses a problem-structuring method to explore the nexus between urban planning and sustainable energy planning in urban settlements. This will create a decision-support system that can measure the performance of urban settlements in meeting their sustainable energy goals, incorporating stakeholders participation, and the development of implementation actions.

Title: Estimation of Surface Roughness Parameters from SAR Images Using Fractal Models

Short abstract: One of the important characteristics of soil surface is roughness parameters. Roughness plays an important role in the analysis of SAR images and three-dimensional surfaces..My research aims to estimate roughness parameters from SAR images using fractal models. The results will be applied to the estimation of soil moisture using a theoretical model and a regression method.

Title: Coagulation in Hypothermic Trauma Patients

Short abstract: In my PhD study I am working with Hypothermia and Coagulation in Traumapatients. Hypothermia is defined by a body core temperature below 35 ° C. It can occur accidentally, but is also being used therapeutically. Hypothermia results, irrespective of its genesis, in an impairment of coagulation. The combination of hypothermia, coagulopathy and acidosis is called a lethal triad of trauma and results in a high mortality in patients with multiple traumas.
