Dr. Ali Reza Shokoohi is a tenured Professor at the department of water engineering, faculty of engineering and technology, Imam Khomeini International University, Iran. He received his B.Sc. degree in Irrigation and reclamation engineering in 1985 at Tehran University. Then, he started researching as a graduate student and received his M.Sc. degree in hydraulic structures in 1988 at Tehran University. After 7 years working as a lecturer at Shahroud Industrial University and also as a project manager in some consulting engineering companies, he continued his graduate studies and completed the Ph.D. training in 2001 in water resources engineering at Tehran University. Then, he moved to Qazvin International University and started teaching as an assistant professor. In 2008 he was promoted to Associate Professor grade and in 2015, because of his impressive accomplishment, was promoted to Full Professor grade and now is conducting many courses and thesis in hydraulics and hydrology. His special favorite is rainfall - runoff modeling in GIS environment, Flood and drought risk and crisis management, Environmental engineering and integrated river basin management. He has managed at least 20 nationwide river engineering projects. He has published 5 books in hydrology, irrigation and drainage engineering and also has published more than 90 papers in valid peer reviewed journals/conferences in water engineering related area  

Dr. Alireza Shokoohi Research Interests

My research area in recent years could be categorized in 4 major fields. Below, these fields and the most recent submitted, accepted, or printed papers in each of which are presented 

                    I am interesting in environmental hydraulics modeling. Some of my recent papers are presented below.  In this area, I could improve a hydrologic EFR method (The Tenant method) by combining this method with hydraulic method (The wetted perimeter approach). I could show that the PHABSIM (IFIM methodology) could be used in developing countries with desktop approach; henceforth, it could be applied with a minimum time and budget consuming. This method offers an ecological regime for river management instead of accepting a minimum value for critical periods. At the present time, I am studying a new version of BBM and its alternative the RVA method to be employed in the absence of enough data (that is the major problem of environmental based river management in developing countries
