Biography

Ali has recently completed his PhD in 3D cadastral data modelling and currently work with NOKIA. He continues his collaboration with the Centre as research associate. Ali completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Surveying Engineering and Master of Science degree in GIS at KNTU. He was an academic staff of Geomatics group in the University of Zanjan, and taught as a part time staff in the University of Tehran (Department of Irrigation and Reclamation) and Khoramshahr Marine Science and Technology University (KMSU).

During his BSc, he has worked as a surveyor in Zanjan Cadastre Center and before starting his MSc, he has also worked as a surveyor in several civil projects such as route making between Bam and Iranshahr, Sistan & Baloochestan province (Iran) and executing a tunnel in Qom province (Iran). After starting his Msc, he became a GIS expert member of KNTU research center and worked on several GIS related projects such as evaluation of Persian Gulf damages (Biological and Non-Biological effects) due to Persian Gulf War by Using GIS Technology, Iranian Fishery Research Center, Tehran, Iran and customizing ESRI’s ArcView (3.2a Version) to analyze road accidents information, Terminal and Transportation Organization (TTO), Tehran, Iran. His MSc thesis title is “Design and implementation of a national geospatial data transfer standard and the relevant software” which was a research project between KNTU, Iranian Space Agency (ISA) and Ministry of I.C.T.
