In line with my goals for use-inspired research, I have promoted practical environmental change through my scholarship. I have spent considerable time to train the next generation of successful environmental scientists. With peer-reviewed articles in high impact scientific journals in the field, presentations, my research group has covered a wide range of topics. My contribution to the scientific community is illustrated by an extensive record of teaching, conference presentations, my activity as a program committee member for international conferences, invited talks local and internationally, serving as chair of doctoral and master’s dissertation committees, my service as a reviewer for scientific journals and Ph.D. theses, my participation as organizing workshops, and my service as an environmental consultant for United Nations Development Program (UNDP). My long-term vision is to maintain a research program that investigates emerging applied research issues and has a multidisciplinary nature. The outcomes of my research efforts are expected to greatly enhance quality of life and improve environmental factors impacting human life.
