Zhengxiao Yan is currently a Ph.D. student from 2021 fall in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. He graduated from Hohai University and Northwest University and got a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Environmental Science and Environmental Engineering, respectively. He will be focusing on finding the relationships between Harmful Algal Blooms and influencing watershed factors and how the Best Management Practices in the urban watersheds will lower the HABs along the coasts in Miami.
Mushfiqul is a PhD student in Civil and Environmental Engineering department at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. He completed his B.Sc. in Civil Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. He graduated with a M.Sc. in Civil Engineering from Florida Atlantic University. His research interest deals with "Integrated Urban Systems Resilience" and "Climate Change". For his PhD, he is developing a BMP siting and cost-optimization tool for the stormwater watershed in Florida and using that tool, he will assess the effects of climate change in the urban watershed. The goal is to predict the impacts of climate change on the watershed and to recommend the optimum measures to overcome those impacts.
Mohammad Sadeq Ahmadi
Mohammad Sadeq is a PhD student in Civil and Environment Engineering department at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. He completed his B.Sc. in Civil Engineering from Kabul University. He graduated with a M.Sc. in Water Management and Governance with a specialisation in Water Resources Management at IHE Delft, the Netherlands under Joint Japan World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program. The comprehensive MSc program covered a wide range of subjects that enriched his knowledge. Besides, it improved his technical skills in hydrological modelling, GIS and remote sensing. Currently, he is evaluating the role of natural and nature-based features in coastal urban watersheds under sea level rise and climate change.
Mahsa is a PhD student in Civil and Environmental Engineering at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. She got her bachelor’s and master’s degree in Water Resources Engineering from University of Tehran. Her master’s thesis was about the crisis management and risk analysis of urban water supply. She used new forms of multi-criteria decision-making methods with the fuzzy approach to select the most appropriate strategies for water supply risk management. Mahsa currently is working on prediction of droughts, including metrological, hydrological, agricultural and socio-economic drought using various hydro-meteorological factors under nonstationarity.
Parnian was a Master student in Civil and Environmental Engineering department at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. She graduated with a B.Sc. degree from Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran. For her MSc, she evaluated the effects of land use/land cover on runoff quantity and quality in a rural watershed. Parnian graduated with a Master's degree in June 2021.
