Amin Mohebbi

Dr. Amin Mohebbi is a Senior Lecturer of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New Hampshire with sixteen years of research and teaching experience in hydrology and hydraulics. He holds a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering with a specialization in water resources from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Immediately after graduation, he pursued post-doctoral research in environmental engineering at the University of Nebraska. Dr. Mohebbi's research is primarily focused on atmospheric and surface water hydrology. His recent work involves modeling extreme weather events in response to future climate change with applications in hydraulic design. Dr. Mohebbi is the author of articles in prestigious journals such as the Journal of Hydraulic Research, Science of the Total Environment, and Nature Microbiology and has presented to numerous national and international conferences. Dr. Mohebbi is a registered professional civil engineer of Water Resources and Environmental and is an active member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and American Geophysical Union (AGU).
