Short bio

Milad Niroumand-Jadidi received the B.Sc. degree in Geomatics Engineering from University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iran, in 2009. He received his M.Sc. degree in Remote Sensing Engineering from K.N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2013. Then, he earned a joint Ph.D. degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from University of Trento, Trento, Italy and Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany, in 2017. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Remote Sensing for Digital Earth (RSDE) unit of the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK).

He has received several international awards. Among those, he has received the best paper award from SPIE Remote Sensing conferences for three years in a row (2015 in Toulouse, 2016 in Edinburgh and 2017 in Warsaw). He is also a recipient of award for potential long range contribution to the field of optics and photonics from SPIE (The international society for optics and photonics) in 2016. He is also a referee for international journals including Remote Sensing of Environment, Remote Sensing, Sensors and Water.

His main research interests include quantitative remote sensing for monitoring inland/coastal waters. Analysis of optical imagery, radiative transfer modeling and spectroradiometry experiments have been key elements of his research.
