Ali Reza FiroozfarPostdoc Research Scholar
As a member of the Iowa Flood Center, I am part of the Iowa Statewide Floodplain Mapping project. I perform hydraulic simulation for the Iowa streams for various flood return periods which the results will be used to produce inundation maps.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Iowa in 2014. My Ph.D. research was focusing on rock scour simulation, downstream of dams, in analog laboratory scour models. My experiences and research interests include sediment transport, river hydraulic, physical hydraulic modeling, hydraulic structure and laboratory experiments.
